About This Activity

The Bucks 5K Series is a non-profit organization that facilitates and coordinates seven 5 kilometer (3.1 mile) road races, all USTAF certified. These races attract the fastest runners in the region, as well as entire families and rookies. Each of the races, all in the spring, take place on various scenic roads of central Bucks County and benefit local worthy causes. They feature a high quality timing chip for accurate scoring and post race festivities for all runners to enjoy.

THE COURSES

All of our beautiful courses have been officially certified by the USA Track and Field Association. The miles are accurately measured, clearly marked and include mile split times. Marshals ensure safety over the courses, with street closings where necessary. Water stations and emergency personnel are a regular part of the races. Age group course records are now posted for each race on www.bucks5kseries.com.
