About NYCRUNS Brooklyn Marathon & Half Marathon

The NYCRUNS Brooklyn Marathon takes a huge leap forward this year as it leaves Prospect Park for the very first time in its eight-year history, adds a new half marathon option, and moves a month earlier to an idyllic October date.

This year's race starts on Eastern Parkway near the Brooklyn Museum and takes you on a 10-mile tour of Brooklyn before heading into Prospect Park. The race will showcase Brooklyn neighborhoods including Prospect Heights, Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Crown Heights, Windsor Terrace, and Kensington. Half marathoners will then run almost a full loop of Prospect Park, while marathoners will complete a total of nearly five loops of the park.

1,500 lucky marathoners will be joined by as many as 11,000 half marathoners in a transformative year for the race. Brooklyn finally has the race it deserves.
