We have been working hard with our partners, Port Authority of NY/NJ, the Township of Weehawken, and Lincoln Tunnel Management, to bring you a safe, in-person event. However, in response to the coronavirus pandemic's ongoing threat, we have made the tough decision to host a virtual event in September. While we are certainly disappointed, our participants, staff, and volunteers' health and safety are of the highest importance. Now for the good news. This year, we're offering two additional distances - 10K and Half Marathon. We hope the new distances create opportunities for those looking for a challenge.
About 2021 Virtual Lincoln Tunnel Challenge
What is the Event?
This year, the Lincoln Tunnel Challenge is offering three different virtual racing options. Runners can choose between a 5K, 10K, and a Half Marathon. Complete your run in your own community as part of the virtual race. As a virtual runner, your registration includes our official 2021 LTC race shirt, an official race bib, and a custom LTC finisher medal.
Between September 1 – September 30, you will run or walk in your own community. The start time and course are up to you!
All proceeds benefit Special Olympics New Jersey and the over 22,000 registered athletes and Unified partners.
