The 32nd Annual Lincoln Tunnel Challenge 5K was a huge success with nearly 2,000 runners raising $175,000 for Special Olympics New Jersey!
It was a cool morning but runners got warmed up with a group stretch from Josh Margolis from Mind Over Matter NYC.
From there, our elite runners started off the day. Kevin Rankin of New York, ran the 5K in 17:18 to take home first place overall with the top female finisher, Julia Hickman, racing in at 21:40. Special Olympics New Jersey athlete Noah Dellas ran an impressive 19:32 finishing in 11th place out of all the competitors.
The second group, a more relaxed race, finished the day off!
The event would not have been possible without the support of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and AmeriHealth!
