The perfect spot to watch the runners will most likely be in Liberty State Park, or better yet, when they cross the finish line in the heart of the Newport Water District.

It will be an exciting morning to come cheer on the runners in the Newport Waterfront community and enjoy the beginnings of fall with pristine views of the Downtown New York City. So bring your best cheering spirit and support- this is an exciting race on a beautiful course you will not want to miss!
