The Bucks 5K Series enjoyed another very successful year in 2019, its 24th season. The Series hosted 3445 runners and raised $137,000 for its non-profit organizations. Since 2002, the Series has raised $1.7 million.
The Series is a 501c(3) non-profit organization that facilitates and coordinates seven road races. These races all benefit worthy causes, provide wholesome family activities, and improve the physical fitness of our communities. There are seven races, all in the spring, and all in Bucks County. The Board of Directors is an all-volunteer organization, with no paid staff. 100% of the money earned stays locally.

The safe and secure courses are all certified to the exact 5K distance by USTAF. They feature a high-quality finish line, plus chip timing for accurate scoring and fast online results. The runners enjoy the post race festivities and the camaraderie of the running community. In 2019, the Break-Fast event also included a 10K race.
