Who's ready to race again!? We’re looking forward to old classics, new traditions, and options that fit everyone’s needs. Join us in October 2021 for a full lineup of in-person and virtual events, including the Novo Nordisk NJ marathon and half marathon, our Platinum and Gold Challenges and the RWJBarnabas Health 5K.
Our in-person races will offer you the chance to run in the shadows of the shore's iconic music joints, retrace the footsteps of Springsteen, and cruise through the shore towns of Oceanport, Monmouth Beach, Long Branch, Loch Arbour, Deal, Allenhurst, Asbury Park, and Ocean Grove. Endless ocean views!
Or join us virtually! Achieve your goals and make great memories on your own favorite course.
The Novo Nordisk New Jersey Marathon is pleased to announce the establishment of the Run It Forward program in 2021. RIF is an effort to reduce financial barriers to entry and make the NJM more accessible to underrepresented and underserved communities in NJ, neighboring states and throughout the US. In 2021, RIF will provide complimentary entries to the marathon, half marathon and 5K (in-person AND virtual options) to individuals who are facing financial hardship through the generosity of contributions to the RIF fund.
Runners, Partners, Sponsors, and the Community at large are welcome to make contributions to RIF. These can be made during the registration process or through this same form as 'Contribution Only' by clicking on the RunItForward tab. At the $40 level, one full entry will be awarded to a deserving recipient. With our goal to help as many runners as possible, complimentary entries will be distributed at the rate the fund grows. Help us connect the underserved running community to the joy of running!
Please help us spread the word of this special program and thank you for your fund contribution.
If you or a deserving athlete you know wants to be considered for a complimentary entry to the marathon, half marathon or 5K (IP + VR), runners complete the brief Run It Forward Athlete Survey. Once a survey has been submitted, the applicant will be contacted directly with next steps for completing a NJM 2021 race entry.
The 2021 NJM is pleased to offer a NO QUESTIONS ASKED REFUND TICKET (NQA Refund Ticket) add-on purchase to anyone creating a new 2021 (not deferred from 2020) entry registering for an in-person race, including the Marathon, Platinum Challenge, Half Marathon, or Gold Challenge.
At the time of your initial registration, purchase a NQA Refund Ticket for the Marathon, Platinum Challenge, Half Marathon, or Gold Challenge events for $25 AND if needed you may request and receive a FULL refund of purchased entry and add-on items (not including the NQA Refund Ticket) for ANY reason with a request made before midnight October 11.
Runners who choose to participate in the PLATINUM or GOLD Challenge will be entered in the 5K on Saturday, October 16 at 9AM, as well as the MARATHON or HALF MARATHON distance on Sunday, October 17 at 7:00AM. Challenge finishers will take home three custom medals in total, one for each distance + one for completing the challenge (a custom platinum or gold medal!). Bling might be an understatement.
