NYCRUNS Brooklyn Marathon

Sunday, November 16 , 8:30 am – 4:30 pm, 2014

The NYCRUNS Brooklyn Marathon follows the legacy of a great institution, the New York City Marathon. Originally run entirely in Central Park, the NYC Marathon has become the largest marathon in the world. This event offers an alternative—a small, community-focused event confined to the 3.33-mile loop around Prospect Park. Register for this event.
