Join us on Saturday, May 11, 2024 for our annual YMCA Bucks County Strong 5k and 1-Mile Fun Run held in scene Doylestown, PA. 

We’re about healthy families and community. This Mother’s Day weekend, let’s celebrate and do something fun with Mom and the whole family! Saturday, May 11, 2024 is a day for our community! The 2024 YMCA Bucks County Strong 5K & 1-Mile Fun Run marks the fourth amazing race out of seven races within the historic 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. New in 2024, we celebrate all runners on Mother’s Day weekend with a special finish line surprise! We look forward to seeing you at the start line for this historic tradition right in the heart of Bucks County, PA!
