The United Airlines New York City Half Marathon course follows a point-to-point route that starts near the Grand Army Plaza entrance to Prospect Park in Brooklyn and finishes after several miles run within Central Park. In between the start and the finish, the last six miles of the race are the hilliest, with the most significant hills coming around miles 10 and 12. The course’s hills are never too difficult, however, as the change in elevation ranges from a peak of 125 feet above sea level to about sea level in the first half of the race.
Note: The course map above provides the approximate route for the race.
