The Janney 5K & Fun Run is on as an IN-PERSON race. We look forward to continuing to celebrate our school and community in a safe and fun way by joining in our annual tradition. There will be a live opening and closing award ceremony.
Let's come together as a community to show our support for Janney teachers, staff, and students, and the greater Tenleytown/AU Park community through a safe and fun race. The Janney PTA thanks you for supporting the race and hopes you can join us.
The week of the race, you will be able to pick up your race t-shirts and swag items from Janney Elementary School. Look for more information as the race approaches!
The live 5K will be on Saturday, November 19 and begin at 9AM but please arrive at least 15 minutes early to ensure you make it to the starting line on time. The live Fun Run will be on Saturday, November 19 and commence immediately after the 5K at 10:15AM.
The live Janney 5K and Fun Run is complying with all DC requirements specific to Covid-19 protocol for special events and adhering to Center for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines. Hand sanitizer stations will be deployed throughout the race site.
Click the "Sign Up" button up top or any of the registration tabs under "event info."
NOTE: If you register after October 15, 2022, we cannot guarantee you a shirt, and even if available, we cannot guarantee your sizes.
Yes! Each family sponsorship costs $120 and can be done in one of two ways.
Please note that with either method, you will be asked who you would like your donation "on behalf of." Please choose "Other" and use the open field to indicate how you would like your family recognized on the back of the race t-shirt. For example, you may enter "Johnson Family" or "Ethan and Emily Johnson" and you will be listed this way on the back of the t-shirt with the other family sponsors. The default is "My Name." If you do not change the default, the name of the person registering for the race will be used and listed on the t-shirt.
Will there be a live opening and closing ceremony?
YES! We are excited to host a live opening ceremony at 9AM and a closing ceremony at 11AM on Saturday, November 19.
We are not offering registration the morning of the race.
We are hosting two dates and times for packet pick up at Janney Elementary
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 17: 3:30pm – 6:00pm
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 18: 3:30pm – 6:00pm
Please come to the front of Janney. You do not need to bring anything to packet pick up. Our volunteers will hand you a bag filled with giveaways from our sponsors as well as your family's race t-shirts. We have teamed up with Janney Community Service Committee. Please scroll down to see the donation request.
NOTE: If you cannot make it to the packet pickup time, please make an arrangement with your friend/neighbor to pick up the packets for you.
We do not offer refunds if you are unable to participate in the event or the event is cancelled that day or weekend due to weather or otherwise, because significant race costs have already been incurred, and we cannot otherwise support this event as a public school. If the event is cancelled in advance due to government Covid-19 restrictions, then we will offer participants the ability to run the event virtually and will work to find a safe way to arrange for race participant pick up of race bags/t-shirts.
We have more detailed information on our FAQs page.
There will be awards for top male and female runners, overall; top students and top teachers; and top runners in each age category.
The Janney Community Service Committee is supporting Iona Senior Services through a gift card drive during race packet pick-up for the Janney 5K!
Please consider purchasing gift cards in denominations of $10-$25 and dropping them off when you pick up your race packets on November 17th or November 18th.
Wegman's will be matching all Wegman gift cards that are donated with another Wegman's gift card of equal value! Please consider donating a gift card at packet pick-up.
Thank you for showing your Janney L.O.V.E.!!!
