About the Event

Come One, Come All!

The Demarest 5K & One Mile Fun Run are a longstanding tradition in the Northern Valley that inspires runners and spectators young and old. At our community event, children run in stride with their families and with seasoned runners from surrounding areas. In 2019, we had over 714 people in attendance from all over Bergen County and beyond. All proceeds from the race go towards the Demarest schools and the race has brought amazing athletic and academic equipment and programs into our classrooms. What sets us apart from all other 5K races is our unique Principal’s Challenge training and mentoring program which starts three months prior to race day and prepares the students not only for the race but also for a lifetime of health and fitness. In addition, we have a full-day school Health Fair for students and families. Together, these events allow sponsors to reach over 1,000 students, families, teachers and business administrators in our community over an extended period of time. Please make a diference for our students and inspire our community.

Principal's Challenge
Dates and Times
completed 5/22

The Principal's Challange is a gradual training program that is run at the 3 Demarest schools leading up to the 5K. Demarest school children (K-8) participate and run weekly with their Principal and volunteers to build healthy habits, stamina, and sportsmanship. This entitles children to participate in Principal's Challenge and the 5K. (Registration for Principal's challenge can only be done thru Race Registration)
