Newport Liberty Half Marathon
22nd Annual T-Mobile Newport Liberty Half Marathon
Sunday, September 20th will mark the 22nd annual T-Mobile Newport Liberty Half Marathon in Jersey City.
The 13.1-mile race is often used as a training benchmark for participants that will go on to run the NYC Marathon. The course follows the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway and offers direct views of the NYC skyline, which runners can admire as they race to support a charitable cause: Jersey City Medical Center – Barnabas Health.
Jersey City’s popular half marathon championship marks its 22nd year! Recreational and elite runners from around the country can compete for $3,000 in prize money on a USA Track & Field-certified course that interweaves with the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway from Newport to Liberty State Park.
The open-air race has been called the most beautiful course in the Tri-State area with spectacular views of Lower Manhattan, the Statue of Liberty and the Verrazano Bridge.
Winnings and records will be awarded immediately after, during the Post-Race Party with refreshments, a local DJ and several prize drawings for gift cards and event tickets. All runners will receive finisher medals.
Cost is $50 per runner – and you can register online newporthalfmarathon.com or by calling (201)665-4005.
