TEF Tenafly 5K Run & Dog Walk
02 June 2019
From the organiser
Join us for the annual TEF Tenafly 5K Run and Dog Walk. The USATF-sanctioned 5K Run is 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 dog owners follow them on the 5K course with their dogs. The day's other fun events include a dog parade, tiger cub races, and a 1-mile fun run. We hope you join us as we enter our third decade of supporting Tenafly Public Schools.
All registered runners receive T-shirt, goody bag, and other free giveaways (while supplies last). A courtesy bag check is available at the Information Tent in the registration area (Tenafly Middle School cafeteria).5K Awards:Top 3 overall Male and FemaleTop Tenafly resident Male and FemaleTop 3 Male and Female: Age Groups 19-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, 80-89, 90-99, 100+Top 3 Male and Female for every Tenafly grade (K-12)*Top 3 Male and Female non-Tenafly Youth: 9 & Under, 10-13, 14-18Top 3 Male and Female Tenafly Public Schools staffTop 3 Male and Female Englewood Hospital and Medical Center employeesTop 3 Male and Female 5K Stroller Trot runners

The race starts and finishes on Sunset Lane, near the entrance to the track. The 5K Run begins at 9:00 sharp, and runners begin lining up at the starting line around 8:45. The 5K Run features an Elite Runner Start, which allows under-21:00 5K runners to start at the front of the pack. For everyone’s safety and as a courtesy to faster runners, slower runners and walkers are asked to start towards the back of the pack.
Parking:The closest parking to the event is in the Tenafly Middle School parking lot on Sunset Lane, but this lot usually fills by 8:30 and will have limited entry/exit between 8:45 and 9:30. Overflow parking is available at Tenafly Borough Hall (100 Riveredge Road) or the Tenafly Board of Education (500 Tenafly Road) parking lots. Street parking is also available, but please pay attention to “no parking” signs on Sunset Lane and Jefferson Avenue.
