Portugal Day Races

Each year runners/walkers, Portuguese or not, gather and race in the historic Ironbound section, celebrating Portuguese-American culture.

The Portugal Day Races take place every year around the first or second Sunday of June (usually the closest one to the Portuguese national holiday). The race was founded in 1979 by the late Manuel Parente and had been directed for many years by the late Domingos Cravo. The Lar Dos Leos (Den of Lions) has organized the event since its beginning. In honor of their service to the Portuguese community, we have named the Cravo Kid Dash and the Parente Mile in the honor. We have also named the 5k in honor of a longtime supporter and friend of ours, the late Jack Casimiro. Had it not been for their contributions and generosity, these races would not be possible.

Canary 5K
Ridgefield Park, NJ, United States

Our goal for several years has been to create a Women's Only Race on a mid Summer's night. The date we landed on by sheer accident was July 24. This inaugural date hails the birth of Amelia Earhart, the pioneer for women in aviation.

The first plane Amelia Earhart owned, The Canary, helped her soar to record breaking heights. So what better name for this race than the Canary 5K. The name speaks strength, determination, passion, and vision! These are the qualities that we recognize and celebrate!

Soar to new heights with us in the Canary 5K!

What you need to know about 5k Runs

A 5k run is the perfect distance for a beginner, it’s 3.1 miles and is the shortest and most popular road running distance. It’s a great goal to include in your fitness regime because there’s no pressure, people walk, jog or sprint so it’s totally up to you.

Find local 5k running races

There are loads of great 5k events, they tend to attract a great crowd and are very family orientated. From runs around the London Parks, to night runs and family events, you won’t be short of 5ks to choose from. Most marathon events such as London or Berlin have a 10k and a 5k race as well so it’s worth checking the larger events.
