In 2018, the NYRR Five-Borough Series will once again finish with the NYRR 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 NYRR Staten Island Half is a perfect tune-up for NYRR’s flagship event and features fabulous views of New York Harbor and the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge.
The NYRR 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 NYRR Five-Borough Series—the United Airlines NYC Half, the Popular Brooklyn® Half, the NYRR Queens 10K, the New Balance Bronx 10 Mile, and the NYRR Staten Island Half—is a celebration of what makes each borough unique, inspiring, and an amazing place to get out and get moving!
