Running

The Park offers miles of roadways and paths for serious and recreational running enthusiasts. A 3.35-mile running lane is provided along the Park Drive. The distance of the sidewalks outside the Park is 3.75 miles. When running in the Park, please stay on paved pathways or in the running lane on the Park Drive so as not to harm the environment. The Park Drive is a loop inside the Park and is accessible from any entrance.

  • If you want to measure the precise distance of a smaller run in the Park, try this website.

Runners on the East Drive

Several track clubs run in the Park, most notably the Prospect Park Track Club, which was formed in 1970. The Club hosts several annual events, including Harry’s Handicap, a race named for the Club’s cofounder, Harry Murphy. For more information on running in Prospect Park, and on races in the Park, you can also contact the New York Road Runners Club or the Brooklyn Road Runners Club.
