Earth Day kicks-off at 10 am with the Annual Earth Day 5K Run/Walk along the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway at Liberty State Park. This race offers a flat and fast USATF-NJ Certified 5K route through Liberty State Park and has become an annual favorite for residents and visitors. All participants will receive a race t-shirt (while supplies last) and can enjoy post-race refreshments at the Earth Day Fair so don't miss out!
