About Statue of Liberty 5K

The Statue of Liberty 5K is much more than running around Lady Liberty. It’s about supporting the thousands of athletes of Special Olympics New Jersey.

This is the ONLY official Run around the Statue of Liberty. Registration is limited to 500 runners, so people should register quickly.

Not ready for a 5K but still want to enjoy Lady Liberty? Register for the 3K walk!

The Statue of Liberty 5K is not an officially timed event. 

Runners must raise a minimum of $100 to participate (the $25 registration fee counts towards your $100 minimum.) Want to save yourself some time on the morning of the 5K? Raise the $100 minimum by June 13, and we will mail you your bib and t-shirt before the event.
