7 Scenic Photos of New Jersey’s Newport Liberty Half Marathon

Known among running enthusiasts as a great preparation & training run for the New York City Marathon held each November, the Newport-Liberty Waterfront Run offers a mostly flat and fast race through the streets of Jersey City with plentiful views of the Statue of Liberty, the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, lower Manhattan and Ellis Island.

From the start and finish line at Jersey City’s Newport-on-the-Waterfront Park, which lies just across the East River from lower Manhattan, where the gleaming Freedom Tower reaches into the sky on the site where the World Trade Center towers once stood, runners make their way up and down the sidewalks along the river.
