Ringwood Educational Foundation 5k
Run or Walk | Come for Fun

This event is a growing attraction for athletes in and around the area, drawing participants from Northern New Jersey, New York’s Orange and Rockland Counties, as well as parts of Connecticut. 


Proceeds from the 5K Run benefit the Ringwood Educational Foundation, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to enhancing and enriching the curriculum in the Ringwood K-8 public school system.  The Ringwood Educational Foundation, Inc. has funded over $550,000 in grants to our public schools in the past twelve years. We could not do it without YOUR support!
