New York, NY
Distance: Half Marathon
The United Airlines NYC Half takes runners from around the city and the globe on a 13.1-mile tour of NYC. Led by a talent-packed roster of American and international elites, runners will stop traffic in the Big Apple this March!
Runners will begin their journey on Prospect Park’s Center Drive before taking the race onto Brooklyn’s streets.
For the third year in a row, the course will take runners over the Manhattan Bridge and up the FDR Drive before a crosstown dash on 42nd Street and a turn north on 7th Avenue, through Times Square, and into Central Park.
The less hilly Central Park route finishes just north of Tavern on the Green and feature a shorter post-race walk-off for runners to exit the park and start their celebrations.
