Meet the Run Concierge
Jim Heffernan is the resident RunWESTIN concierge for The Westin Jersey City Newport. As an avid lifelong baseball player and a previous MMA fighter, Jim knows the importance of running to maintain a holistic lifestyle. Aside from playing sports, he has also participated in stimulating and invigorating runs such as Tough Mudder and Urban Mudder. Jim enjoys the release of stress that running brings, making you feel refreshed and balanced. Running in new cities or areas is one of Jim’s favorite ways to explore and see new places from a fresh perspective.
We offer maps designed and certified by New Balance for Jersey City running routes around the hotel. Maps are available at the concierge and feature 5 through 8k jogging/walking routes from our hotel.

We’ve teamed up with New Balance to provide three- and five-mile routes through the city, along the beach or into rural landscapes.
Runners of all levels are welcome to join a group run with our Run Concierge at many locations, or grab a running map and take off on their own. Either way, you’ll be welcomed back with a fresh towel and cold bottled water.
