NYCRUNS Brooklyn Marathon

November 19, 2017

Start time: 8:30AM

Prospect Park

Address: Center Drive Brooklyn, NY



The Brooklyn Marathon is yet another step in the journey to the world’s center stage that Brooklyn has taken in recent decades. Now in it’s 7th year, this race has continued to annually sell out, been lauded as “Marathon Of The Year” and attracted runners from all over the planet. We think of it as the best little big city race in America.

CAMBA is the official non-profit partner of the 2017 Brooklyn Marathon.


CAMBA is a non-profit agency that provides services that connect people with opportunities to enhance their quality of life. CAMBA reaches more than 45,000 individuals and families each year, including 10,000 youth. They serve a diverse cross section of New Yorkers from new mothers in Brownsville to job seekers in the Rockaways.


The USATF-Certified, Boston Qualifying marathon will comprise 6 full loops and 3 lower loops of the park.
