Rising New York Road Runners at Popular® Brooklyn Half

Cheer on the kids as they get the chance to take on the Coney Island boardwalk, one of Brooklyn’s most iconic spots. The Rising New York Road Runners at the Popular® Brooklyn Half is a one-mile race and all participants will receive an official souvenir. 


Experience All That Brooklyn Has to Offer

While you’re in town for the Popular® Brooklyn Half, check out the nycgo.com New York Road Runners NYC Visitor Guide for official information about Brooklyn restaurants, shops, nightlife, and sporting events as well as exclusive deals and offers.

Why Race with New York Road Runners?

A portion of this event's proceeds supports NYRR’s mission to help and inspire people through running, and benefits NYRR’s youth and community programs.
Course Info

Start near the Brooklyn Museum and run past the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and around Grand Army Plaza before entering Prospect Park. After a loop around the park, exit from the southwest corner onto Ocean Parkway and cruise toward the world-famous Coney Island for a triumphant finish on the boardwalk.

Three-Hour Time Limit

In the interest of safety, and to allow Brooklyn streets to reopen as scheduled, the Popular® Brooklyn Half will have a three-hour time limit. Participants who are not able to maintain a 13:45-per-mile pace (based on the time when the last runner in wave 2 crosses the start line) will have the opportunity to board a sweep bus starting at mile 7 for transport to the post-finish area at Coney Island.

These participants may choose instead to continue running on the sidewalks, but they should be aware that fluid stations and other course amenities may not be available, although they will be able to cross the finish line. These runners may not be recorded as official finishers; they can email results@nyrr.org to request 9+1 TCS New York City Marathon qualifying credit for the race. Thank you for your cooperation with this policy.
