About the Series

The Bucks 5K Series is designed for runners of all ages and abilities. Featuring seven 5K races, the series spans from March until June annually.


The Bucks 5K Spring Challenge Series was originally founded in 1995 when several races in the region had conflicting race schedules. They realized that by working together to form running series they would attract some of the fastest runners in the region. Early races included the Chalfont Challenge 5K, Special Equestrians 10K, Doylestown 5K Race, and Central Bucks Family YMCA Y Run. The Series would go on to support races with collective timing, marketing, and ideas to make their individual races more unique for runners and to maximize profit for the charities they support.

In the early 2000’s the Series brought on an avid runner and much needed leader, Dick Patterson. With Dick’s leadership the Series welcomed new racing technology, more engaged sponsors, and welcomed many new races to the organization. Looking ahead to 2019, the 24th Annual Bucks 5K Series is proud to welcome back Compuscore as our official timing company and usher in the next generation of the Bucks County running community. The Board of Directors is comprised of all volunteers, with no paid staff. Since 2002, the Series has raised more than $1.6 million dollars for its race beneficiaries.
