Why does the 5k start before the 15k?

Race start times are designed to maximize the runners' experience out on course. The 5k and 15k courses overlap for a period of time, so when the 5k begins first we can ensure that the vast majority of 5k runners will have completed the race and can pick up their Hot Chocolate Finisher Mugs before the 15k winner comes through the finish line.
