Welcome To The Run For Rwanda 5k & 1 Mile Fun Run
When you hit the pavement on October 22nd, you’ll be running for the Clean Water Cause and the people of Rwanda! It will be both exciting and fulfilling to complete the race and know your effort helped to bring clean, safe drinking water to those who need it most.

New in 2022, we have both in-person and virtual opportunities to participate in the Run For Rwanda. That means even if you are not local to the Run For Rwanda in Parsippany, New Jersey, you can still support the clean water cause from anywhere in the world! For virtual participants, please note that registration closes on Sunday, October 9th

Invite family and friends to participate - they can run, walk or stroll. Or they can always serve as your personal cheering section - not only will they have fun encouraging you along the way - they’ll enjoy our expo and indoor funtivities for kids. See you at the starting line!
