Princeton 5K - Run, Walk, or Remote!
Saturday, March 19

The thirteenth Princeton 5K is on Saturday, March 19, 2022. Athletes - young and old, big and small, fast and not as fast - come together year after year to run or walk while  supporting the Princeton High School Cross Country and Track & Field teams. It’s the teams' largest annual fundraiser, and the money we raise supports lower-income students in need of gear, funding for athletic equipment not covered by the PPS budget, tents for rainy weather meets, and season-end recognition for athletes and coaches, etc.

The in-person race starts in front of Princeton Middle School at 217 Walnut Lane at 8:30AM. Runners can organize into teams. In 2022, we are adding a 300m kids dash for all children under the age of 10.  

This year there is also a virtual option that runners can complete any time between March 19th and 26th.  You can choose when and where you run or walk your 5K.  Wait for the perfect sunny afternoon.  Take your favorite running partner, two-legged or four.  Push a stroller.  All are welcome in this year's 5K! Sign up and get more information at
