This Saturday is the 13th annual Newport 10K will take place in Newport, kicking off in Newport Town Square (100 Town Place) in Jersey City.
The USATF certified course is the fastest course in the tristate area, mostly flat and running along the Hudson River waterfront in Jersey City. Recreational and elite runners will have the opportunity to compete at the highest level for their share of $15,400 in prize money.
Proceeds are being donated to the Jersey City Medical Center, which I personally love because it provides especially good care for women and infants.
Racers take their mark at 8:30 a.m. Registration opens at 7:00 a.m. Winnings and records will be awarded immediately after, during the Post-Race Party with refreshments, a local DJ and several prize drawings.
