What Racers Have to Say About The Brooklyn Half Marathon

"Great course. I know people complained about the location of the number pickup. Unless you live in Dumbo, the pickup location is pretty out of the way. This is the first run I know about where the race organizers let you send a 'proxy' to pickup your number if you gave them a copy of your ID, so that was helpful. It also is a super early start, but you get to finish nice and early. Otherwise, it's well organized and lots of supporters along the course. I would reccomend it to a friend.

About The Brooklyn Half Marathon

The Brooklyn Half Marathon is a Running race in Brooklyn, New York consisting of a Half Marathon.

The Airbnb Brooklyn Half, the largest half-marathon in the country, is an iconic 13.1-mile journey through an ever-popular borough. A PR-producing, spectator-friendly course from leafy Prospect Park to the Coney Island boardwalk isn't all it's got. A three-day Pre-Party at Brooklyn Bridge Park kicks it off, and an After-Party at MCU Park keeps the celebration going.

Course Info
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.

Eduardo DeMarco - Solid half marathon with good crowd

06/01/2015

"This was a solid run. Challenging long uphill stretch through Prospect Park during the begining, and then an almost perfectly flat run thereafter. Most of the run is on Ocean Parkway, which isn't the most scenic or interesting part of Brooklyn, but it helped avoid an overcrowded feeling in More...

kberlz - Not the most exciting, but a nice race.

"Ran this race in 2012 and 2013, and plan to run in 2014. It's a nice half -- pretty flat with just a few small areas of elevation. The course is a little boring -- you run straight down Ocean Parkway for a large chunk (maybe 6 miles or More...
