Mark Your Calendar - the Brooklyn Half Marathon

New York Road Runners has announced the date of the Brooklyn Half Marathon - May 19. We love this marathon and look forward to it each year. First, the half marathon is a great distance because it tests your limits, your endurance and mental capacity yet is a manageable distance to train for on top of life, work, kids, etc. Second, it's a half marathon in our backyard that takes you on a mini tour of the borough. And finally, what's not to love about a half marathon that finishes in Coney Island? You can grab a Nathan's hot dog, people watch and get your post race ice bath in one place.

Watch the NYRR website for announcements on when race registration opens.  It sold out in a few days last year!

Whether you race or run for fun, it's important to respect the distance. Be smart about your training. The Brooklyn Half is in 14 weeks. We recommend a 10-12 week training plan. Not sure you want to run this one? Check out these online race finder sites for another half marathon that works for you or ask us for recommendations!
