In 2015, the 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 TCS New York City 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. New this year is the NYRR 5K at the Staten Island Half, which finishes at home plate in Richmond County Bank Ballpark, and is open now for registration.

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 United Airlines NYC Half, the Airbnb 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! 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.
