About the Race

The TENTH ANNUAL Chick-fil-A Young Life 5K/10K and Running of the Calves Kid’s Fun Run is fast approaching! It’s hard to believe that this event started out so long ago with a random Facebook message and a couple of texts between, what were at the time, two complete strangers. It began quietly in scenic Riverside Park attracting far fewer runners than today. But fast forward almost a decade, and it remains one of the areas premier racing events, with nearly 500 participants running along the city streets of beautiful Victoria, Texas! And what better place to start and finish than Chick-fil-A!! 

Thanks to all of our generous sponsors over the years and of course every dedicated race participant, we’ve raised well over a quarter million dollars directly benefitting the youth of our community. However, the impact made through Young Life’s influence is impossible to place a price tag on. Hundreds of high school students are impacted every year, experiencing positive and sometimes dramatic life change!

From the bottom of my heart, and on behalf of my Chick-fil-A family, I want to thank you for taking part in something for the greater good, something to help make our community the best that it can be!

For Our Local Kids

100% of the proceeds raised through our sponsors and participants in the Chick-fil-A / YoungLife 5k/10k and Kids Fun Run goes towards helping send local Victoria high school students to camp. For many students, a YoungLife camp is their first opportunity to experience an outdoor, team building event of this nature and it is a life changing event.
