Something for Everyone!

Starting and finishing with the half marathon runners, it’s the perfect chance for everyone to run together, whether it’s 13.1 or 5 miles!

Both races start together in front of the Brooklyn Museum and run the out-and-back down Eastern Parkway, continuing down Washington before splitting off. While half marathoners will continue down Ocean Parkway, 5 Milers will cut through beautiful Prospect Park, past the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Prospect Park Zoo, and the beloved Carousel, and will finish with a free post-race concert, complimentary beer, and awesome medal.
