Description

Join us on Sunday, May 6, 2018, at Ross Dock in the Palisades Interstate Park, in Fort Lee, New Jersey, to experience the majestic Palisades as you run for a good cause and conquer the cliffs! Proceeds from the races support the Palisades and its parks!

The Palisades Half Marathon is a challenging but rewarding race. Run along the historic Henry Hudson Drive—one of the nation's first recognized scenic roads—as you ascend and then descend the cliffs. With an elevation change of over 1200 feet, this course may be tough, but the setting makes it more than worth it! *USATF-NJ SANCTIONED AND CERTIFIED*

The Palisades Trail 6K is the newest addition to the race. Run, walk, or hike the course along the beautiful Long Path up the cliffs, across the ridgeline, and then back down to the river. *USATF-NJ SANCTIONED*

The Palisades 5K is another beautiful race, with an elevation change of just over 200 feet up and down. Start at the Hudson River and head about halfway up the cliffs and then back down to Ross Dock park. *USATF-NJ SANCTIONED AND CERTIFIED*
