Forget the tolls and traffic...RUN the Lincoln Tunnel! This unique 5K takes runners through the tunnel and back, all to benefit Special Olympics New Jersey.



About Lincoln Tunnel Challenge 5K

The Lincoln Tunnel Challenge is one of the most unique races in the country that not only is underwater but also spans two states. Participants will run or walk a 5K (3.1 miles) certified USATF course. The toll booths in Weehawken, NJ mark both the start and finish of the race. There is a cone turnaround once participants reach the NYC side of the tunnel.  

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