Brooklyn Greenway Half Marathon and 5K
October 15 @ 7:00 am - 2:00 pm| 50.00
Experience the Brooklyn Waterfront like never before at the only half marathon and 5K exclusively held on the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway.
The Brooklyn Greenway Half & 5K, hosted by Brooklyn Greenway Initiative and produced by elitefeats will take runners on a 13.1 mile or 5K journey along the Brooklyn waterfront from Red Hook to Greenpoint. The course offers unique and memorable urban views of the Manhattan skyline, the Brooklyn, Manhattan and Williamsburg Bridges and showcases City, State and industrial parks including Brooklyn Bridge Park as well as the rare opportunity to run through the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
The Brooklyn Greenway Half & 5K attracts runners from Brooklyn and beyond with the “sold out” 2016 event seeing 1,650 finishers from Brooklyn and 30 states across the country. Once again the event welcomes a large contingency of runners from all abilities and all ages– both first-timers and half marathon veterans to join the 5th annual event.
All runners will receive a free tee, a finisher’s medallion and will celebrate their achievement at the finish festival with a delicious spread of snacks and drinks and an awards ceremony. There will be free course photos, finish photos and water stops every two miles for participants as well!
By running The Brooklyn Greenway Half & 5K, participants will be supporting Brooklyn Greenway Initiative, the nonprofit organization committed to the development, establishment and long term stewardship of the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway. When complete, this 14-mile landscaped route for pedestrians, runners and cyclists will connect neighborhood parks and open spaces from Greenpoint to Bay Ridge.
