Join us for the Verrazano Festival of Races – one of our biggest Shore Road Park events of the year!  This page is for the half marathon only.  You can also register for Sunday’s 5K or 10K.


Run along the super flat and scenic running path that hugs the southern edge of Brooklyn. You’ll run under the Verrazano Bridge and see the Manhattan skyline from across the harbor. It’s New York running from a whole new perspective.

All finishers will receive a medal.  A terrific techie singlet will be the giveaway for this race and Clif Bar products plus the usual great NYCRUNS post-race spread will greet you at the finish line. Bag check and toilets will be provided. Water and gatorade will be available on the course.


Pre-race packet pickup TBD.  Race day packet pickup will be available at the start line beginning at 6:30 AM.  We strongly encourage you to pick up your race materials in advance of race day to avoid lines.

Please note, there is no packet pickup on Saturday for Sunday’s 5K & 10K.

You must choose this option when registering and the bib must be mailed to the address you choose then.  Shipping to domestic US addresses only.  The cost is $15.00. Note: Shirts will not be mailed. They will be available for pickup before or after the race.


Take the R train to Bay Ridge Avenue and walk downhill to Shore Road 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.
