The long-awaited 2012 Brooklyn Half-Marathon took place today as 15,000 runners made their way from the Brooklyn Museum to the Coney Island Boardwalk on a perfect May morning. The 24-year-old men's event record time was broken by the top two finishers. We have great photo galleries, full race stories, and more in our post race coverage.
The Brooklyn Half-Marathon wasn’t just bigger this year. The field of 14,158 finishers—more than double the size of last year’s—produced an event record on the men’s side and unprecedented depth of talent in both the men’s and women’s races.
The elected officials assembled at the start of the Brooklyn Half-Marathon were unanimous: This year's race would be the biggest and best yet.
There was a lot to love about the 2012 NYRR Brooklyn Half-Marathon: a field of 15,000, spectacular spring weather, a finish on the Coney Island boardwalk, and nearly 40 special offers for runners and fans at Brooklyn businesses
