NYRR Staten Island Half Race-Day Essentials

Race Date: Sunday, October 13
Start Time: Wave 1: 8:00 a.m.; Wave 2: 8:30 a.m.

Runners, are you ready to take on the last race in the 2019 NYRR Five-Borough Series: the NYRR Staten Island Half? We're excited too, and as race week kicks off, we urge you to check out these race-day logistics to ensure you have a smooth start on October 13.

Race-Day Bib Pickup 

If you need to pick up your bib on race day, you can do so at Race-Day Central, located at the Staten Island Ferry exit bus depot, from 6:30 to 8:15 a.m. (On-site souvenir pickup will be available in that same location after the race from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.)

Arrive with Time to Spare

We strongly recommend using public transportation, including the Staten Island Ferry. Ferries run every 30 minutes. Travel time is approximately 25 minutes. Check mta.info/weekender for the latest updates, follow @NYCTSUBWAY on Twitter, and register for text alerts.

Plan your transportation based on your wave and what you need to do before entering your corral:

Wave 1 (8:00 a.m. start): Arrive by 6:30 a.m. (take the 6:00 a.m. ferry) if you have not picked up your bib or you need to check a bag. Arrive by 7:15-7:30 a.m. (take the 6:30 or 7:00 a.m. ferry) if you have already picked up your number and don't need to check a bag.

Wave 2 (8:30 a.m. start): Arrive by 7:00 a.m. (take the 6:30 a.m. ferry) if you have not picked up your bib or you need to check a bag. Arrive by 7:45-8:00 a.m. (take the 7:00 a.m. or 7:30 a.m. ferry) if you have already picked up your number and don't need to check a bag.

Your checked bag must be the clear plastic bag with the tag affixed.

Parking is available at the following locations: 

  • St. George Courthouse Garage (54 Central Avenue)
  • Public Parking Lot (55 Central Avenue)
  • Allied St. George Corp. (25 Wall Street)
  • New York Wheel Garage (155 Richmond Terrace)
