5Ks and 10Ks have 88% and 94% aerobic contribution, respectively.  From that, it should be obvious that aerobic development plays a huge role in how successful one will be in racing those distances.  That comes more out of aerobic volume and (ideally) not just one run from the entire week — to focus on one run to the exclusion of its training context is unwise.
