On May 14, 2016 at 8:30 am the 13th annual Newport 10K will take place.
This race is known as the fastest course in the tristate area. The Newport 10,000 is a 10K road race along the Hudson River waterfront in Jersey City’s community of Newport. With $15,400 in prize money this race appeals to both recreational and elite runners. The course is comprised of flat and local roads that interweave along the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway which provides a spectacular view of the Manhattan skyline.
The race will be followed by Newport’s annual Post-Race Party, which is going to feature a live DJ, refreshments and prize drawings. You can win NY Mets tickets, NY Red Bulls Tickets, a 1-hour massage or several restaurant gift certificates.
Proceeds fro the race will be donated to the Barnibas Health, 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.
As an official blog sponsor I had the opportunity to run this years race, unfortunately I now reside in Tampa and will not be in the Tri-state area at the time of the race. This looks like an amazing 10K with amazing views at a perfect time of year and I am sorry that I won’t be running it, but I am going to do the next best thing—-give my entry to one lucky reader!
The 10K distance is a great one! I have run quite a few and always love them. They are short enough to race all out and long enough to feel super accomplished, plus between you and me, it is one distance that I am pretty much race ready for at all times. My ultimate goal is to get under 50 minutes in the 10K, my current PR is 54:45.
