The Ridgewood Run is being organized by the North Jersey Masters Track and Field Club and in-person event registration is frozen until further notice due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This event will be held virtually, with the goal of being able to host in-person socially distanced races on Memorial Day 2021.

The Ridgewood Run was created by Manfred d’Elia and his world-class runner wife Toshiko d’Elia in 1976 because he was tired of driving his wife into Manhattan to compete with the New York Road Runners. Since then, it has become one of the premier races in North New Jersey that’s always held on Memorial Day and has grown to include 3,500 participants from around the country.
