Join us for the Verrazano Festival of Races – one of our biggest Shore Road Park events of the year! You can choose the 5K or the 10K. You can also register for the Half Marathon, which takes place on Saturday, April 18.
Courses: 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.
Time Limit: The official time limit is three hours for the half marathon, 55 minutes for the 5K, and 90 minutes for the 10K.
Awards: Awards will be given to the top three male and female runners overall in each race and the top three finishers in each ten-year age group.
Packet Pickup: Pre-race packet pickup will take place on Friday, April 17 from 4-8 PM at JackRabbit Sports – Park Slope (151 7th Avenue between Carroll St. and Garfield Pl.). 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 at Saturday’s Half Marathon for Sunday’s 5K & 10K and vice versa.
Amenities: All Half Marathon finishers will receive a medal. A great techie singlet will be the giveaway for this race and 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 for the 10K and Half Marathon participants.
Directions: 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.
Cost: Half Marathon: $40 through 3/29, $45 through 4/12 and $50 until online registration closes. 5K/10K: $40 through 4/12 and $45 until online registration closes. NYCRUNS members receive a 5% discount, race deferral rights, and other perks.
