28th Annual Narberth CF Run & Walk

The Narberth CF Run & Walk will be held in-person this year!
Race Day Registration is next to the Narberth Park Basketball Courts.

A Long-Running Tradition

Beginning as a centennial celebration for Narberth Borough in 1995, the Narberth 5 Mile Run has flourished to become one of the best small town five milers in the country. The following year, the McCloskey and Nardi families, both from Narberth and both having sons living with cystic fibrosis (CF), continued hosting the event. Proceeds from the first Narberth CF Run supported a wish for a local child battling cystic fibrosis (CF), who received his care at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. He and his family took a breather from CF and enjoyed a magical trip to Disney World. Since then we have provided countless “breathers” for children and adults battling this disease.


A 5-Mile Run winding through the spectator lined streets of Narberth, PA. The course is known to be one of the area’s more challenging 5 milers and is a great training run for the Broad Street Run.

The Narberth Run has supported wishes for children and adults battling cystic fibrosis (CF) since 1996. Cystic fibrosis is a terminal illness for which there is no cure. We ask that each runner and walker help us in our mission – to help those battling CF, by fundraising or making a self-donation of $100.  Help make this possible by donating today or creating your own fundraising page, which you can share with family and friends! If you have any questions or need assistance, please email [email protected]

You can also choose to create a Facebook fundraiser.

Every donation counts!
• $125 supports a day in Disney for a CF patient.
• $200 supports grocery relief for a family during the pandemic.
• $250 supports a Chromebook helping students with school this fall.


Bring your friends together for a fun morning complete with FREE volunteer T-shirts and more! Great opportunity to fulfill service hours for high schoolers, college students and teams, companies, and others looking for volunteer engagement and a FUN team-building experience! We can provide documentation for volunteer hours.

We need help with Day-Of Course Marshals for traffic control to be sure the runners and walkers are safe!

To volunteer, please visit our VOLUNTEER Page call 610-664-1826, or email [email protected]
