YMCA Bucks County Strong 5K & 1 Mile Fun Run

Date & Time

Saturday May 6, 2023

5K Race 9:00 | Fun Run 8:30

May 6, 2023 is a day for our community! We are thrilled to announce our live annual endurance event for runners of all ages and levels! Our 13th annual YMCA Bucks County Strong 5K marks the fourth amazing race out of seven races within the Bucks 5K Series, and for those new to our 5K, our race experience lives in the heart of our Doylestown community that is a perfect race for both first-time runners and seasoned athletes.

Runners of all ages will enjoy the picturesque scenery of Doylestown with a finish line in War Memorial Stadium at Central Bucks West High School. Race day will create an experience like none other, beginning with pre-race entertainment before runners embark on their run and feel the energy of family, friends, and the community at large cheering them on. An additional 1-mile Fun Run directly on the track provides a great way to encourage the next generation of 5K runners.

There’s only one way to finish this celebration: A Bucks County Strong finish! Turn race day into a whole family experience, as vendors and family fun events will be available, capped off with our post-race party celebrating our Bucks County Strong champions. More information to follow! We look forward to seeing you at the start line!
