Join us for the 10th Race Back to School event in beautiful Downtown York to support the York Academy PTO.

New for 2022: a one-mile walking course. This course is for anyone who wants to support the event but doesn't want to go 5K. We've mapped out a one-mile stroll in Downtown York (starting and ending at the same point as the runners). You won't get a race bib (no timing) but you still get to be part of this great event and you're supporting our students!

  • Adults $30
  • Youth $10

Note: Due to increased operating and supply costs, the 5K will be manually timed (previously, chip timing was used).

32 W North Street
York, PA US 17401

Parking is available in the gravel lot on Beaver Street. The York City parking garages (Philly, E Market, W King) offer free parking on weekends.

Parking is not available in the Warehaus or Upper School parking lots due to course road closures. 

Chivalry Sponsor

The York Academy Regional Charter School is a nonprofit, tuition-free public charter school located in Downtown York that educates nearly 1,000 diverse students via the rigorous, world-class International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum.

The Academy offers challenging academics along with innovative art, music, theater, and design/engineering programming within a caring, small school environment. Through the IB framework, the York Academy aims to develop inquiring, balanced, knowledgeable young people who help to create a better, more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

Founded in 2011, the school is chartered by Central York, York City, and York Suburban School Districts. Students from about ten other districts are also enrolled.

The PTO is a parent-run organization that works closely with school staff to fund field trips, family fun nights, assemblies, classroom supplies, and more. Parents are invited to join and attend meetings anytime throughout the year.

The York Academy PTO's objectives are:

  • To promote the welfare of the children in our schools
  • To improve conditions for children in school and the community
  • To bring about a closer relationship between parents/guardians and teachers so that they can work together in helping the children become outstanding citizens in the community
  • To secure the best advantages of physical, academic, and social education for each child
