The Young Life 5k is more than a race! It is an opportunity for kids to experience the best week of their life. All registrations will help send kids in our local area to camp. Over the past few years our ministry has grown substantially and now we are blessed to serve so many different kids. Our programs and camp are built with these kids in mind:

Young Life - high school students from Hickory, St. Stephens and Newton Conover High schools

Wyld Life - middle school students from Northview, Grandview, Arndt, Newton Conover & Concordia

Young Life College - students from Lenoir Rhyne University


Camp is life changing for our students and often they leave saying it was the best week of their lives. By participating in this run, you make it possible for kids to experience this week and establish lasting relationships with our local leaders and mentors! THANK YOU!




 You can register race day on site.

We can not guarantee race shirts for race day registrants.


Thank you again for registering and helping kids experience the best week of their life at camp!
