Get ready for the annual Run for Liberty 5K benefiting The Friends of Liberty State Park.

The Run for Liberty is a 5K in support of The Friends of Liberty State Park (FOLSP), which is an all-volunteer non-profit 501(c) (3) grassroots stewardship organization founded in 1988. FOLSP is dedicated to supporting Liberty State Park; an inspiring recreational open space, natural and historic public resource behind Lady Liberty and Ellis Island. So please join us on November 6th! Runners, walkers, and spectators welcome!

While this run/walk is not officially timed there will be a clock at the finish, food for runners, and all runners will get an official race shirt.

What we are supporting

Our mission is to preserve, protect, conserve and promote Liberty State Park. All proceeds from this race will go towards protecting & improving Liberty State Park!

The Friends of LSP have been advocating for the LSP Protection Act after four decades of overwhelmingly unpopular privatization and commercialization plans. Please sign our Petition at CLICK HERE to support the Liberty State Park Protection Act, threatened by the Liberty National Golf Course plan to privatize and destroy LSP's Caven Point natural area wildlife habitat and environmental education resource. For more information about the Friends of LSP and about the Protection Act, please go to www.folsp.org

The Course

Starts and finishes at the south end of the Liberty State Park waterfront. Runners will enjoy inspiring vistas of Lady Liberty, Ellis Island, the Manhattan skyline, and New York harbor!


Per the Center for Disease Control outdoor events are extremely safe. When you're outside, fresh air is constantly moving, dispersing covid-19 droplets. So it is unlikely to breathe in enough of the respiratory droplets containing the virus that causes COVID-19 to become infected. Being outside offers significant benefits, too. It offers an emotional boost and can help you feel less tense, stressed, angry or depressed. We will ensure additional safety to our staff & participants by spacing out the start times, having hand sanitizer readily available, no water stations on course, and more.
