Founded in 2010, the Big Backyard 5K, also known as the BBY 5K, is a community run/walk
showcasing King County Parks.
Proceeds from the BBY5K benefit King County Parks, supporting maintenance and operations of facilities and recreational resources. Over our 12 years, more than 13,000 runners and walkers have gathered to raise over $80,000 for King County Parks. Thank You!
This year’s event celebrates the great facilities and recreational opportunities provided by King County Parks. We want to thank Harborstone Credit Union for their support of this family-friendly 5K run/walk.
Please join us at 8:00am on Sunday, June 4 to have fun in Your Big Backyard.
LIVE 5K RUN-WALK
The BBY 5K is your race for Team competition, a flat fast course, a familywalk/jog in the park, and quality time with your four-legged running buddy.
VIRTUAL 5K RUN-WALK

Submit your results to us anytime between June 1 to 4. Apps such as Strava, Garmin, MapMyRun, etc. are appreciated, but we will also take your word for it in support of King County Parks. Packets will be mailed to Virtual participants.
Sign up with your friends and running buddies! We will take the results from your Fastest 5 finishers to calculate Team Awards.
