Big Forest Half Marathon. The Big Forest Half Marathon organized by Du City Tri Runs will be, as with all our races, very well marked, packed water stations and great finish line area. The run course will take you through shaded paths and roads in Bass River State Forest. Its trails are highly popular among local runners. The main loop (5.1 Miles x2) start by the Beach House and for the first half mile you will run on a paved road, the next two miles will take through a trail full of high pine tree, the last 2 plus will be on paved roads that will take you back to the parking lot by the Beach House where you will run past the fans and spectators. www.citytri.com/big-forest-half-marathon
Newport Liberty Half Marathon. The Newport Liberty Half Marathon, with views of the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, the Verrazano Narrows Bridge and the stunning Manhattan skyline, is also the fastest around. This USATF certified course takes you along the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway and across to Liberty State Park flat terrain with open skies. Plan for a post-race celebration at Newport Town Square with plenty of refreshments, music and drawings for a host of exciting prizes. $3,000 in award money will be offered to winning runners in each category, with proceeds donated to the Jersey City Medical Center Barnabas Health, the area's only not-for-profit hospital, and the regional trauma center. All runners will receive finisher medals. www.newporthalfmarathon.com
