NYRR Five-Borough Series: Staten Island Half


Standard registration for the Staten Island Half has reached capacity. We'd love to have you run as a member of Team for Kids! Find out how and sign up, but hurry! We only have 200 spots left.

The 2014 NYRR Five-Borough Series will once again finish with the Staten Island Half, a race dedicated to making a positive impact on the borough that hosts the start of the TCS New York City Marathon. Scheduled just three weeks before the marathon, the Staten Island Half is a perfect tune-up for NYRR’s flagship event and features fabulous views of New York Harbor and the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. 

The NYRR Five-Borough Series showcases our renewed commitment to the individuals and communities in each borough. More than just five races, the Five-Borough Series—the NYC Half, the Brooklyn Half, the Queens 10K, the Bronx 10-Mile, and the Staten Island Half—is a celebration of what makes each borough unique, inspiring, and an amazing place to get out and get moving! Starting with Manhattan at the NYC Half, come with us on a runner's journey through the five boroughs of NYC and experience what makes them special. 

The Staten Island Half is a part of NYRR's Five-Borough Series: Run New York. Five Boroughs. One City.

NYRR Youth Running Series

Course Info

You'll start near the Richmond County Bank Ballpark and proceed along the scenic St. George waterfront. You'll turn left on Richmond Terrace and pass the Staten Island Ferry Terminal before heading down Bay Street. As you turn right on School Road and merge left onto Lily Pond Avenue, you’ll pass by Fort Wadsworth, the staging area for the 2014 TCS New York City Marathon. You'll make your way onto Fr. Capodanno Blvd and run out and back along the South Beach shorefront, with a turnaround at Graham Boulevard just after the seven-mile mark. You'll make your way back toward the ferry terminal, making a left onto Bank Street and then entering the ballpark and crossing the finish line at home plate!

Three-Hour Time Limit: In the interests of safety, any Staten Island Half participant who is not able to maintain a 13:45-per-mile pace throughout the race (3:00 projected finishing time) will be picked up along the course starting at approximately mile 8 and transported to the finish. The time it takes the last runner to cross the start line (not including those who arrive late to the race) will be added to the overall 3:00 time limit, ensuring all participants a 13:45-per-mile pace. Thank you for your cooperation with this policy.
