The NYCRUNS Brooklyn Half Marathon is our flagship event.
Created in 2011 as the NYCRUNS Brooklyn Marathon, the race was held entirely in Prospect Park until 2018 when it moved onto the streets and became the NYCRUNS Brooklyn Marathon & Half Marathon. In 2022, the race course was expanded to an iconic route starting in hip North Brooklyn and winding around the waterfront taking you under the historic Williamsburg, Manhattan, and Brooklyn Bridges while delivering eye popping views of Manhattan.
Already a world class event, one of the largest races in New York City, and one of the ten largest half marathons in America; the NYCRUNS Brooklyn Half Marathon strongly believes in supporting local businesses, non-profits, and artists in unique ways otherwise unavailable in New York City. Welcome to Brooklyn, baby!
