The 33rd annual Lincoln Tunnel Challenge 5K took place Sunday, April 28th in Weehawken, NJ. Nearly 1,700 runners raised over $150,000 for Special Olympics New Jersey!
Thanks to Port Authority of New York/New Jersey, the tunnel was closed for the event and runners ditched the cars, tolls, and traffic to span the 8,006 ft. tunnel. Before the race, runners were led in a group stretch by Mind Over Matter NYC trainer, Joshua Margolis.
The first race, featuring the elite runners, started the day. New York City resident Samuel Gotts took home first place among the male runners with a time of 17:09. Laura Walsh, a Bronx resident, captured first place among the women with a time of 20:19.
The Lincoln Tunnel Challenge 5K would not be possible without the support of many. The event was presented by AmeriHealth New Jersey and sponsored by the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics New Jersey. In addition to AmeriHealth New Jersey and the Law enforcement Torch Run, the event was hosted by the Port Authority of New York/New Jersey and made possible by many others including Academy Bus for providing shuttles to and from Manhattan for the event.
