About NYCRUNS Newport Liberty Half Marathon

Known among running enthusiasts as a great preparation & training run for the New York City Marathon held each November. The race’s starting and finish lines are at Newport, part of a 600-acre live-work-play community of high rises, restaurants, commercial buildings and nightspots on Jersey City’s waterfront, just across the Hudson River from New York. The 13.1-mile course for the race takes runners through city sights including Liberty State Park, Green Park, the Harborside Financial Center, and the Newport Town Square.

The T-Mobile 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.
