    Portugal Day Races

    80 Ferry St, Newark, NJ 07105, USAView event
    About the event
    From the organiser

    Each year runners/walkers, Portuguese or not, gather and race in the historic Ironbound section, celebrating Portuguese-American culture.

    The Portugal Day Races take place every year around the first or second Sunday of June (usually the closest one to the Portuguese national holiday). The race was founded in 1979 by the late Manuel Parente and had been directed for many years by the late Domingos Cravo. The Lar Dos Leos (Den of Lions) has organized the event since its beginning. In honor of their service to the Portuguese community, we have named the Cravo Kid Dash and the Parente Mile in the honor. We have also named the 5k in honor of a longtime supporter and friend of ours, the late Jack Casimiro. Had it not been for their contributions and generosity, these races would not be possible.
