ABOUT OUR EVENT
Individuals and families from throughout Southern New Jersey will lace up their sneaks and soar like eagles for Cedar Run’s 7th Annual 5K Run! This year, we are doing things a bit differently. We’re allowing participants to run the 5k trail here at Cedar Run OR at a location of their own choosing during these 2 weeks in October! Participants will receive a Runner’s Package with their event t-shirt, medal, and other special goodies. They will post their photos, stories, and interact on our Hoot, Waddle, and Stroll 5K Run Event Page on Facebook! Your registration supports Cedar Run’s mission of wildlife rehabilitation, environmental education & habitat preservation.
Cedar Run Refuge, located in the Pinelands of Medford Township, cares for more than 5,100 wild animals annually and is also dedicated to educating children about the importance of conserving our shared habitats. Cedar Run also aims to promote outdoor health and wellness for all ages.
We invite everyone to form a team and raise money to support Cedar Run! Our funding comes solely from donations, and we deeply appreciate your efforts to support our mission and our animals! Recruit your family and friends to participate in the event or donate to our organization!

WHERE TO RUN
Run at Cedar Run: If you choose to do your running at Cedar Run, the course goes through rugged single-track trails within the property of Cedar Run and a very small segment on the road. It is a beginner to intermediate mostly flat course with varied terrain and scenic views. This is a great course for first-time trail runners and families! This course is not designed for strollers and participants need to be able to maneuver through tree ruts, steps, bridges, soft sand, etc. *Sorry, no pets allowed.
