Brooklyn Half Course Description

As expected, the Brooklyn Half starts in Prospect Park and ends out at Coney Island.

One downside to the course change - now you have to do the Prospect Park hills twice. The description on the NYRR Web site doesn't say whether the course will be run clockwise or counterclockwise (though races in the park are usually counterclockwise).

"Two full loops of Prospect Park, exiting West Drive onto Prospect Park Southwest to Park Circle; Ft Hamilton Parkway to North Bound Lane of Ocean Parkway traveling south onto Surf Avenue ( East Bound Lane); left turn onto West 2nd entrance ramp onto boardwalk (near handball courts); turn right (west) on boardwalk. Finish: On boardwalk behind Keyspan Field."
