About Statue of Liberty 5K
What is the Event?
The Statue of Liberty 5K is about much more than running around Lady Liberty. It’s about supporting the more than 25,000 athletes of Special Olympics New Jersey.

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 race? Raise the $100 minimum by 6/16 and we will mail you your race bib and t-shirt prior to the race.
