Organiser's Description

The HunterFest 5K is back for its third year! This breathtaking USATF-NJ Grand Prix qualifier 5K in Liberty State Park offers one of the worlds most spectacular views of the New York City skyline and Lady Liberty.  All levels are welcome. This will be a perfect recovery run for locals competing in the Jersey City Marathon a few weeks prior as it is a flat, fast course. The top three overall male and female finishers will receive cash prizes! Bring your family and friends who will cheer you on while enjoying HunterFest, where they can sample delicious local cuisine, play carnival games and more.
You have the option to set up an individual or team fundraising goal for your race in order to raise money for HuntersWorld, a local Jersey City based nonprofit, peer mentoring program doing the vital work of empowering local teenagers to strengthen their mental health.
