The Marquee Event

Race a half or full marathon staged & starting in the Newport Green area of Jersey City. Then travel through Jersey City's picturesque waterfront, Powerhouse Art District, Historic Paulus Hook District, down Caven Point Road through the Bergen & Greenville communities, & back to the Newport Green area where the half marathon will come to a finish & the full marathon will continue looping around a similar course but in reverse. See all the great neighborhoods that make up Jersey City's Golden Door, & take advantage of all this marquee event has to offer: pre-race expo, race day bag check, refreshments, entertainment, on course support, & our fantastic finishline festivities. All registrations will come with a quality dry fit running shirt, unique 4" finishers medal, & much more!

This event will be a 2024 Boston Qualifying Event. 

The Course

A smooth, flat, fast, double loop course through the neighborhoods of Jersey City including Liberty State Park. With only ~228 ft of ascent and  ~231 feet of descent, it is bound to be your PR and dare we say a Boston Qualifier?!

*Preliminary Course, subject to small changes.
