NYRR Five-Borough Series: Staten Island Half


In 2016, 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 four 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.

Looking for a shorter distance? Join us for the NYRR Staten Island 5K! It's open now for registration and it finishes at home plate in Richmond County Bank Ballpark. 

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

Please note: Runners cannot register for both the Staten Island Half and the NYRR Staten Island 5K.

Event Hashtag: #StatenIslandHalf—use it in your public tweets and Instagrams to be automatically entered into the new NYRR Social Hashtag Challenge to win prizes!

Live unofficial results are available during the race at Features include leaderboards, map tracking, and an individual runner search that can be shared on Facebook and Twitter.
