10th Annual Newport 10,000
Known as the fastest course in the tri-state area, the Newport 10,000 is a 10K road race along the Hudson River waterfront in Jersey City’s community of Newport. Recreational and elite runners will have the opportunity on May 11 to compete at the highest level for their share of $14,400 in prize money.
The USA Track & Field-certified course is comprised of flat and local roads that interweave along the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway and provide spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline. Racers have access to four water stops during the race, as well as clocks at each mile.
Records and $15,000 worth of prize money will be awarded immediately after the race, and will be followed by a Post-Race Party with music, refreshments and prize drawings. Win NY Mets tickets, NY Red Bulls Tickets, a 1 hour massage or several restaurant gift certificates!
Proceeds will be donated to the Jersey City Medical Center, the area’s newest regional referral teaching hospital, providing the highest level of care for women and infants, and trauma and heart patients.
