The Popular® Brooklyn Half, the largest half-marathon in the country, is an iconic 13.1-mile journey through the amazing borough of Brooklyn. The race starts near the Brooklyn Museum and ends at a finish line on the Coney Island boardwalk.
The Popular® Brooklyn Half is part of NYRR's Five-Borough Series: Run New York. Five Boroughs. One City.
Kids are invited to conquer the Coney Island boardwalk on May 18 with Rising New York Road Runners at the Popular® Brooklyn Half. This one-of-a-kind event takes place in the heart of Coney Island and is open to Stage 2 and 3 participants. The event will feature an unforgettable one-mile run on the boardwalk that starts and finishes at the Popular® Brooklyn Half finish line.
Popular Brooklyn Half
Start near the Brooklyn Museum and run past the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and around Grand Army Plaza before entering Prospect Park. After a loop around the park, exit from the southwest corner onto Ocean Parkway and cruise toward the world-famous Coney Island for a triumphant finish on the boardwalk.
Three Hour Time Limit
In the interest of safety, and to allow Brooklyn streets to reopen as scheduled, the Popular® Brooklyn Half will have a three-hour time limit. Participants who are not able to maintain a 13:45-per-mile pace (based on the time when the last runner in wave 2 crosses the start line) will have the opportunity to board a sweep bus starting at mile 7 for transport to the post-finish area at Coney Island.
These participants may choose instead to continue running on the sidewalks, but they should be aware that fluid stations and other course amenities may not be available, although they will be able to cross the finish line. These runners may not be recorded as official finishers; they can email [email protected] to request 9+1 TCS New York City Marathon qualifying credit for the race. Thank you for your cooperation with this policy.
