Five boroughs. Five races. One amazing series.
This year's NYRR 5-Borough Series kicked off with the Manhattan Half-Marathon in January and will continue with the Brooklyn Half-Marathon on May 19.
We're thrilled to announce the remaining races in the 2012 series:
Queens 10K (July 1)
Bronx 10-Mile (September 9)
Staten Island Half-Marathon (October 7)
What's new: Updated courses through iconic streets, expanded athlete fields, more entertainment, charity involvement, and partnerships with local businesses offering deals and discounts for you and your fans. You'll notice that the series offers a variety of distances, making it more inviting to runners of all levels and interests.
What's tried and true: Completing four of the five races qualifies you for guaranteed entry to the 2013 NYC Half, plus our special patch and recognition for four-out-of-five and five-out-of-five finishers. You'll still find plenty of great half-marathons on our annual calendar!
Each race will reflect the heart and soul of its borough and will offer you a chance to connect with diverse communities in exciting new ways. If you're training for the ING New York City Marathon or any other fall 26.2-miler, the Queens, Bronx, and Staten Island races are a perfect opportunity to safely build mileage during the hottest months of the year. And if your schedule prevents you from running a race, please consider volunteering.
All five races will remain the first-class NYRR experiences you've come to expect.
Stay tuned for updates, and get inspired to Run for Life!
