On April 24th 2022, join thousands of marathoners and half marathoners for an epic running journey a decade in the making! Founded in 2011, the NYCRUNS Brooklyn Marathon & Half Marathon now has a course worthy of the borough it calls home and a great new Spring date.
See the course flyover below!
The iconic new route starts in hip North Brooklyn and winds around the waterfront taking you under the historic Williamsburg, Manhattan, and Brooklyn Bridges while delivering eye popping views of Manhattan. From there, the route heads up the grand concourses of Fulton Street & Flatbush Avenue before passing through Grand Army Plaza and into historic brownstone Brooklyn.
Half Marathoners will turn into Brooklyn’s backyard Prospect Park at mile 10 while marathoners will continue to “Sodom By The Sea,” Coney Island U.S.A. before returning to Prospect Park to complete the final 3 miles of the race. It’s an epic tour de force of Brooklyn like none before.
The USATF Certified courses will be electronically timed using the MYLAPS Bibtag system. There will be timing (split) points and clocks throughout the course. Water, Gatorade, and restrooms will be available approximately every 1.5 miles, and medical support will be available throughout the course.
