Athletes in Wheelchairs

The Novo Nordisk New Jersey Half Marathon always welcomes athletes who use wheelchairs to participate. For 2016, we will be able to allow both push rim or hand crank wheelchair athletes to both COMPETE (race) and COMPLETE these events. Our full marathon will be a speed-restricted, point-to-point course for athletes in wheelchairs, but our half marathon will not have any speed restrictions. At this time, we cannot accommodate any relay teams for the wheelchair categories.
