The USATF-Certified Half Marathon course will feature one full loop of the park, one 5-mile  loop crossing at the 102nd Street transverse, and one lower loop crossing at the 72nd Street transverse. Half-Marathon Map

Race Cap & Time Limit: This race is currently capped at 1500 runners. The official time limit is 5 hours and 15 minutes but as a rule of thumb the last thing we unplug is the finish line mat – take your chances over 5:15.

Awards: Awards will be given to the top three overall in each gender after the race. Age group awards to the top three in each 5-year age group for each gender will be mailed on demand.

All runners will receive an awesome medal, a hoodie, and the usual NYCRUNS post-race meal. Hot Chocolate? Of course!

Packet Pickup: The Running Company at 1059 3rd Avenue between 62nd and 63rd Streets on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Pickup times will be on Friday, February 22nd, from 4 to 8 p.m. and on Saturday, February 23rd, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Bib Mailing: There will be no race day packet pickup but we offer  bib mail option for $10 per bib. You will need to pick up your hoodie after the race.  We do not recommend signing up for this service after 2/10 if you cannot check your mail the day before the race or if you are not in the New York Metropolitan area.

Cost: The marathon is currently priced at $95 and the half at $70. The half will increase to $80 on 2/18 and to $100 once packet pickup begins. The marathon will increase to $100 on 2/18.  There will be no race-day registration.  The standard no-refunds, no-deferrals, no-transfers policy applies, unless you are signed up for the NYCRUNS membership program.
