Part of the Bucks 5k Series

Join us for our annual Y RUN 5k/Strength Walk and 1-mile Fun Run. Whether it's your first 5k or you're an experienced racer, the Y RUN is a great way to show your support for Central Bucks Family YMCA and be a part of the community you love. Enjoy spring in bloom while running or walking through Delaware Valley University’s beautiful campus.  The course is perfect for all levels of runners!

This year our race will have a special Mother's Day theme! M
others, grandmothers, aunts and friends are invited to stop by the “Paint Spot” to customize their race shirts and create a special race day memory. The Paint Spot will be open to all from 4:00pm and 6:45pm (weather permitting) outside student center. After the big race, stop by the selfie station with your favorite cheerleader or running buddy to capture that perfect snap chat or Facebook photo celebrating your accomplishment!  

If photos and paint aren't your style, enjoy a refreshing adult beverage on us! Must be 21 and older and show your 5k race bib.

Please note the Y RUN 5k/Strength Walk and 1-mile Fun Run are early evening races! All races are rain or shine. No refunds available!
