About This Activity

Hot Cocoa For All!

The Brrr-ooklyn Half Marathon returns in 2015! We’ll be pulling out all the stops for this one as we get the year started in Brooklyn racing!

Event details and schedule

Start time: 8:30 a.m.

Course: The USATF-Certified course will comprise a bit less than 4 full loops of the park. The start & finish are yet to be determined due to construction in the park.

Race Cap & Time Limit: This race is currently capped at 500 runners and will sell out early. The official time limit is 3 hours but as a rule of thumb the last thing we unplug is the finish line mat – take your chances over 3:00.

Awards: Awards will be given to the top 3 male and female runners in the race and the top 3 in each ten year age group.

Packet Pickup: Packet pickup will take place at JackRabbit Sports in Park Slope (151 7th Avenue (between Carroll St. and Garfield Pl.)) on Friday, January 23, from 4:00 – 8:00 PM.  Race day packet pickup will also be available at the start line beginning at 7:30 AM.  We strongly encourage you to pick up your race materials in advance of race day to avoid lines.

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.

Directions: Take the F/G to 15th St Prospect Park, 2/3 Grand Army Plaza or the Q to Prospect Park. Please check MTA Trip Planner for up to date and detailed mass transit directions and Google Maps for driving directions. Parking is limited at all of our events, we strongly encourage you to use mass transit.

Cost: The half marathon costs $50.00 through 11/30, $60. through 12/31, and $70. until online closes.  In person registration (if available) will be $80. The standard no-refunds, no-deferrals, no-transfers policy applies.
