We have been working closely with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, and in the spirit of following the recommendations and restrictions put forth by our federal, state, and local leadership, it has become necessary to transition the 2020 Lincoln Tunnel Challenge 5k into a virtual race. We felt it's more important than ever to keep this tradition alive while encouraging runners and walkers to stay active. We can all still get out to run or walk in our local neighborhood or park while maintaining appropriate social distancing guidelines and raise funds to support the 26,000 athletes of Special Olympics New Jersey.



About Virtual Lincoln Tunnel Challenge 5K

Complete your 5K run in your own community as part of the virtual race. As a virtual runner, your registration includes our official 2020 LTC 5k race shirt, an official race bib, and a commemorative LTC 5K gift.

Between September 4 – October 4, you will run or walk a 5K in your own community. The start time and 3.1-mile course are up to you!

All proceeds benefit Special Olympics New Jersey and the 26,000 athletes they serve.
