Run the most beautiful course in the Tri-State area
The Newport Liberty Half Marathon, with views of the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, the Verrazano Narrows Bridge and the stunning Manhattan skyline, is also the fastest around. This USATF certified course takes you along the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway and across to Liberty State Park–flat terrain with open skies.
Plan for a post-race celebration at Newport Town Square with plenty of refreshments, music and drawings for a host of exciting prizes.
$3,000 in award money will be offered to winning runners and teams in specific USATF-NJ categories, with proceeds donated to the Jersey City Medical Center – RWJ Barnabas Health, the area’s only not-for-profit hospital, and the regional trauma center.
ALL RUNNERS WILL RECEIVE FINISHER MEDALS.
