Lincoln Tunnel Challenge 5K

Lincoln Tunnel Challenge 5K


Location: 500 Boulevard East, Weehawken NJ 07086


The Lincoln Tunnel Challenge 5K is one of the most unique races in the country. This USATF certified 5K (3.1 miles) takes place mostly underwater and spans two states. 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 over 22,000 athletes and Unified partners.

The Lincoln Tunnel Challenge may be a fundraiser benefiting Special Olympics New Jersey, but it’s also a life changer for the athletes and their friends, families, and communities. For over 50 years, Special Olympics New Jersey has provided year-round sports training, competition, leadership opportunities, and health screenings to thousands of registered athletes and Unified partners. These programs and services are free of charge, thanks to fundraising events like the Lincoln Tunnel Challenge.
