More than just five races, the Five-Borough Series—the United Airlines NYC Half, the Airbnb Brooklyn Half, the NYRR Queens 10K, the New Balance Bronx 10 Mile, and the NYRR Staten Island Half—is a celebration of what makes each borough unique, inspiring, and an amazing place to get out and get moving! Come with us on a runner's journey through the five boroughs of NYC and experience what makes them special.
