Do I need to warm-up before a short-distance race?

Include Pre-Race Warm-up Prior To A Short Race

If you are running a short distance race of 10 miles or less, warm up with a 10-minute warm-up jog, especially if you plan to run faster than a normal training run. A warm-up jog is just that—slow and easy running. But remember to time yourself and don't run too far away from the start. You don't want to find yourself sprinting back to the starting line at the last minute.
