The YMCA of Greater Brandywine’s first-ever virtual 5K is being held from Saturday, April 24 through Saturday, May 1. During that time, participants run or walk a 5K at a time and place of their choosing—it can be on a treadmill, at your Y, neighborhood street, a trail, or anywhere you like.

  • Early Bird Registration - $28/runner. You are guaranteed a special commemorative Run for Good t-shirt in your chosen size.

Run or Walk Your 5K

While running or walking your 5K, be sure to post photos to your social media channels using the hashtag #RunfodGoodYGBW. Upon completing your 5K during the race period, print your finisher’s certificate and report your race time at our race website. Prizes will be raffled off to race finishers throughout the week!

What You’re Supporting

All proceeds from the Run for Good support our Annual “CAMP-aign” to ensure every child in Chester County has the opportunity for an incredible summer. Children have been greatly impacted by the pandemic and are craving social engagement, activity, adventure and fun—all of which are available safely through the YMCA’s summer camps!
