The Race is On!
We're pleased to announce that the 42nd Annual Terri Roemer Paramus Run is scheduled to take place Sunday, October 18, 2020 at the Fairfield Inn & Suites Paramus.

Since 1979, runners and walkers have been coming to Paramus on the third Sunday in October to enjoy the beautiful fall weather, participate in one of the most runner-focused events of the year, and help young people succeed through the Paramus Scholarship Fund. Since its inception, the Run has contributed over $700,000 to the fund.

Safety is our top priority. This year's Run will be a very different event, with just one 4-mile race. There will be NO 5K Race, NO 10K Race, NO Health Walk, NO Kid's Fun Run. There will also be no Post-Race Party, and no Awards Ceremony. However, post-race snacks will be available and prizes will be awarded. We will once again be offering our popular, long-sleeve t-shirts to everyone who registers.

Please read the 2020 Paramus Run Rules and Waiver before registering. See below, or click here for a printable PDF. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate these unprecedented times.
