JC Kids Run 2019 in Jersey City

Calling all KIDS from 1 to 12 years for The JC Kids Run in Jersey City on Saturday June 1st 2019.

The JC Kids Run in Jersey City is back for the 5th year and it keeps getting bigger and better!  Children race through the course with the biggest smiles on their faces as the community cheers them on. The excitement and joy on their faces as they cross the finish line is priceless!

In addition to the kids run, there are a wide variety of activities for children of all ages.  This event takes places at Exchange Place, along the Hudson River, with views of the Manhattan skyline.

All JC Kids Run Participants will receive a t-shirt and a medal. Fastest runners in each age group will be awarded.

The JC Kids Run in Jersey City is held from 10 am-2 pm. All parents will receive an email with their children’s time slot a few days prior to the event.

We are proud to help two amazing organizations this year at JC Kids Run.


A non-profit social enterprise that creates sustainable jobs and provides relief through the distribution of shoes and clothing around the world.

JCFamilies and NJCU Athletics Department will be collecting new or lightly worn shoes to benefit the global efforts for soles4soles. If you have any new or lightly worn shoes please bring them with you to the event. Donations will be received at the NJCU Community Recreation Table.

Embrace Kids Foundation 

Embrace Kids was founded in 1991 and is located in New Brunswick, NJ. The Foundation assists families whose children have cancer, sickle cell and other blood disorders in the NJ/NYC metropolitan area. The goal is to address and support spiritual, emotional and financial issues of the kids and their families. All programs and services are free to families and include emergency financial assistance, individualized tutoring, counseling, and inspirational events and holiday parties.

We are proud to raise funds for Embrace Kids Foundation at our JC Kids Run for the 5th year. You can donate here.
