The Brooklyn Marathon is yet another step in the journey to the world’s left stage that Brooklyn has taken in recent decades. Now in it’s 6th year, this race has sold out every year annually, been lauded as “Marathon Of The Year” and attracted runners from all over the planet. We think of it as the best little big city race in America.
Course: The USATF-Certified, Boston Qualifying marathon will comprise 6 full loops and 3 lower loops of the park. Course Map
Race Cap & Time Limit: This race is currently capped at 500 runners. The official time limit is 6 hours but as a rule of thumb the last thing we unplug is the finish line mat – take your chances over 6:00.
Awards: Awards and prize money will be given to the top three male and female runners overall as follows: $250 for 1st Place, $100 for 2nd Place, and $50 for 3rd Place. Awards will be also be given to the top three male and female finishers in each ten year age group.
Packet Pickup: Pre-race packet pickup TBD. Race day packet pickup will be available starting at 7:00 AM by the start/finish area in Prospect Park.
Amenities: A great long sleeve race shirt and an amazing finisher medal will be included. Bag check and toilets will be provided. Hot chocolate, bagels, spreads, and fresh fruit will make up the usual great NYCRUNS post race spread.
