Runners follow an out-and-back course along the streets of Jersey City at the Newport Liberty Half Marathon, which starts and finishes at Newport-on-the-Waterfront Park, overlooking the Hudson River. From there, the course winds through the waterfront area and Liberty State Park across the river from Manhattan, with plentiful views of the Statue of Liberty, the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, lower Manhattan and Ellis Island. It’s considered one of the most scenic, and one of the flattest and fastest half marathons in the Tri-State area, organizers note.
