Nycruns Big Apple Half Marathon – New York City, NY
We’re saving the best for last with our classic winter half: The NYCRUNS Big Apple Half Marathon. If you haven’t raced in Central Park in winter you’re in for an off-season treat. You’d never know that the clogged streets of 5th avenue and Central Park West are only a few yards away. The park is quiet and peaceful, with just the sounds of runners’ footsteps to serenade you.
We also reserve this race for our BIGGEST and FLASHIEST finisher medal. Seriously, normal people probably couldn’t even wear it around their necks, but YOU CAN because you’re an awesome athlete who just completed a half marathon in winter!
Event details and schedule
The race begins on West Drive near 96th Street, completing two and a half loops of the park across 72nd Street and up Harlem Hill before finishing on the 102nd Street transverse.
Bag check and toilets will be provided. Water and Gatorade will be available on the course, and bagels, spreads, fresh fruit and more will make up the usual great NYCRUNS post race spread to greet you at the finish line. The giveaway for this race will be a great long sleeve tech t-shirt*. All finishers will receive a medal.
*Sizes are guaranteed – if we don’t have your size at the race, email [email protected] within two days of the race and we’ll ship your shirt to you a few weeks later. Make sure to include the race name, your name, size and shipping address in the body of the email.
