PLAN YOUR POST-FINISH

The Airbnb Brooklyn Half After-Party at MCU Park (8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.) is a great place to reunite! Stadium sections will be marked with letters; you can arrange to meet at the letter corresponding to your last name, then relax, purchase refreshments, and enjoy live music and entertainment.

RESULTS, TRACKING, AND COVERAGE

Live unofficial results and map tracking are available during the race in the New York Road Runners app. Tell your friends and family to follow your progress, and get unofficial results right after the race. Visit nyrr.org on race day for amazing coverage and photos.
