The Borough of Runnemede [†] is a 2.1 square mile (1,344 acres) municipality in northwestern Camden County, southeast of Philadelphia. The Borough shares a boundary with Bellmawr Borough to the northwest, Barrington Borough to the northeast, Magnolia Borough to the east, Gloucester Township to the south, and Deptford Township in Gloucester County to the west.
The development patterns of Runnemede and the surrounding municipalities can be characterized as suburban, with development consisting of medium density residential neighborhoods, with industrial and larger commercial uses near the limited access highways, and concentrations of mixed uses and commercial development along major roadways. Residential development in Runnemede is typical of "first generation" suburban areas, consisting primarily of single family homes on small to medium size lots (generally ranging from 5,000 to 10,000 square feet), with some multi‑family residential areas scattered throughout the Borough.
Exit 3 on the New Jersey Turnpike is located at Runnemede's northern border with Bellmawr Borough, and the Black Horse Pike (State Highway Route 168) traverses the center of the Borough, running in a north‑south direction. The Black Horse Pike serves as the major commercial corridor in the Borough, with lesser concentrations of commercial properties on Evesham Road and Clements Bridge Road. The Borough's convenient access to several major roadways has spurred industrial and commercial development in the Runnemede Commerce Center adjacent to the NJ Turnpike.
