The Youth Villages 5K & 10-Miler is celebrating 37 years in 2019! This attracts thousands of runners each year and has become a Memphis-area staple since 1982, making it the oldest and largest running event in our community.
The race was started by MAAR members and continues to be largely run by our members. As such, MAAR is proud to sponsor the YV5K for the 37th year running. Proceeds from the race will go toward youths' transitional living, mentoring and spiritual life programs.
Racers can stop by the MAAR office all day to pick up their t-shirts and numbers or to pre-register. You can register as an individual, join a team or start your own team! Interested in attending but not running? Be a race day volunteer! Volunteers take part in every aspect of the race and are essential to a successful race day.
