Tenafly 5K Run


Join us as we celebrate the 25th TEF Tenafly 5K Run and Dog Walk on Sunday June 4, 2023. From our modest beginnings, this USATF-sanctioned 5K Run has become one of the largest road races in North Jersey, drawing more than 1,500 runners of all ages and abilities. After the runners leave the starting line, more than 100 dogs – with their owners – follow them along the same 5K course. But that, of course, is only some of what makes our race special. We have family-friendly events for everyone – including a 1-mile Fun Run for all runners, our Tiger Cub runs for the 6-and-under crowd, and inflatable bounce houses. In addition, we invite you to visit our Family Health & Fitness Fair to meet our sponsors, share some snacks, drinks and even get your face painted.

All proceeds from the event support the Tenafly Educational Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization that funds teacher-initiated programs and projects in the Tenafly public schools that the school budget is unable to cover. These grants allow teachers and administrators to bring their creative and innovative ideas into the classroom in order to enhance the learning experience. The Tenafly 5K is the single largest fundraiser for TEF. The event raised $40,000 in 2022 and has raised more than $700,000 since its inception in 1999. We hope you join us as we continue our third decade of supporting Tenafly Public Schools.
