National Youth 5K Series

The National Youth 5K Series (NY5K) is a 5K and 1mi (fun run) youth and family-friendly running series and 6-week youth running clinic (optional) that benefits the Team Captain Kids Foundation and other non-profit youth organizations. These can be found on our Partners page. Our Goals: Teach the love of running Do our part to raise a healthy nation and combat childhood obesity But our true Mission is to help kids: OVERCOME challenges in life… DREAM about their true purpose… and SUCCEED with help from their Team We believe the race is a metaphor for life and want to use this race series to provide kids with a recipe for success that can translate into other areas. There is no question that life is hard and our children will face challenges and adversity… but our goal is to teach and inspire them to meet this adversity with confidence because they have seen it before and practiced successful habits.
