Distance: 5K

New York Road Runners is expanding into New Jersey! As part of that effort, we will host open runs and free youth programs throughout the year. In addition, we’re launching the NYRR Newport Fiesta 5K which offers a unique race with an expansive course through downtown Jersey City.

Festivities will be held throughout the day—including a Rising New York Road Runners event with free, shorter-distance races for younger athletes—and will culminate with a post-race festival as the sun sets.
