About the Event
The NYC Half Marathon is a 13.1 mile race featuring a field of 15,000 runners who will enjoy an iconic NYC experience, beginning their run in Central Park and finishing at South Street Seaport.
The thrilling course will start in Central Park and finish at South Street Seaport! Runners will start on Central Park's West Drive near 64th Street, head south, and make a complete counter-clockwise loop of the park. They'll then continue to the south end of the park, exit onto Seventh Avenue, and head south to Times Square. A right turn onto 42nd Street will take the runners to 12th Avenue (West Street/West Side Highway), where they'll turn right, go north for one block, and then make a U-turn at 43rd Street and run south along the Hudson River waterfront on West Street/West Side Highway to Lower Manhattan. They'll take the Battery Park Underpass to FDR Drive and take the South Street exit, cross over South Street onto Old Slip, turn right onto Water Street and continue to the finish line on Water Street at Maiden Lane.
