OUR 17th Year Running!


Upper Saddle River 5k Run

On Thanksgiving morning don't forget to burn some calories, catch up with the neighbors, help the community and go home with a sharp looking t-shirt (and maybe more). That's right … please come to the Upper Saddle River 5k Run (Formerly The Dick Meighan Memorial 5k Run). Once again, thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, the Upper Saddle River Rec Commission promises another stellar event. We expect the usual highly-competitive individual and family competitions, plus we'll be providing top-notch awards, a complimentary t-shirt, and a super spread of post-race refreshments.

We need your help! This year we are asking race participants to drop off towels, sheets, linens, pillows, any bedding. It will will be donated to the Center for Hope and Safety in Bergen County. This is a safe haven for women and children who are victims of domestic violence and these are much needed supplies. Thank you in advance.

Registration and pick-up of t-shirt and race number may be done in person on race eve from 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM, Wednesday November 25 at  Cavallini School, gymnasium, Upper Saddle River, NJ.

DISCOUNT FOR GROUPS that register 50 or more runners: There will be a $5 discount per runner. A check will be given to the group leader after the race, which can then be distributed to the runners.

The race is organized by the Upper Saddle River Recreation Commission through the generosity of the families and businesses listed in our Sponsors Page. This year's race will follow the format of our previous races and feature individual and family team competition.

2015 SWAG!

To support and reward the participation of young people, age divisions are: 10-and-under, 11-12, 13-14, 15-16, 17-18, 19-24, 25-29. In 2007 we added a new catagory, The Baby Buggy Brigade, to add a new element of fun to the annual race.

Proceeds from the event continue to benefit the local community, including D.A.R.E., Ambulance Corps and Fire Department, USR Education Foundation, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts of America, USR Youth Triathlon, Shelter Our Sisters, Oasis, Children's Therapy Center, The Rose Foundation of Haiti, and the "Extra Mile" Scholarship Fund. Total donations exceed $200,000. The race has also provided much Thanksgiving Day joy to thousands of runners and their families. The Upper Saddle River Recreation Commission is extremely grateful to all who support the event.
