For several years in a row I have been an official blog partner for the Newport 10K in May and the Newport Liberty Half in September. They’re races that I look forward to doing every year. These are the race reports of when I participated as an official entrant, both as paid and as sponsored. The year 2012 was the first time I ran the Newport Liberty Half and I broke 2 hours for the first time.

I spectated in 2013 and 2014. As you can see, I haven’t missed one since 2012, but this streak will come to an end. This year I, unfortunately, have to miss out on the Newport Liberty Half because Ben is doing an Ironman 70.3 that day in Atlantic City.
My loss is potentially your gain! Instead of me taking the entry for myself, I will be doing a giveaway on Rafflecopter.
Why should you enter? Well, Newport Liberty Half is a great half early half marathon. I’ve generally used it as a training run for a later fall goal half or for fall marathon. The course is flat and fast with a beautiful second half that goes into Liberty State Park and the Newport waterfront boardwalk. The post-race food includes free beer and there are many great places nearby for brunch.

Giveaway ends August 20th at midnight. Newport Liberty Half takes place on Sept 17th at 8:30 am in Newport (100 Town Square Place), Jersey City, New Jersey.
I’m running Chicago and happen to be looking for a half as a tune-up! This will be a perfect race for the occasion!
Good luck to you!
I would love to win your raffle because I want to run a race in and it looks cool and I like running and I have almost finished my list of running a race in each of the five NYC boroughs so I figured I should start aiming for places further away. Since I am not a super runner who will ever win the race, it would be nice to win a race entry 🙂
I rarely win stuff too, unlike Ben who wins all the time. It’s annoying, particularly when he enters contests he doesn’t want to enter and only did it because I nagged him into it. Good luck!
