New York > NYRR Half Marathon Series: Bronx Half Marathon
New York-The Bronx, NY



Sunday, August 28, 2011

Event Details

The fourth of five races in the New York Road Runners Half Marathon Series takes runners on a course through New York's historic Bronx borough, and moved in 2010 to August from February (when it was run in 2009).

From the starting line near the banks of the Jerome Park Reservoir (a national historic landmark), the route runs completely around the reservoir and along the tree-lined Mosholu Parkway, along a fast and flat course made up entirely of paved city streets.

Along the way, runners are treated also to sights such as the Art Deco architecture of the Grand Concourse roadway, the leafy St. James and Fort Independence Parks and the Bedford Park neighborhood. Participants are limited to three hours on the course, and the race finishes along Mosholu Parkway and Goulden Avenue back at the reservoir.

The race packet pickup for the New York Road Runners' Bronx Half Marathon lies near the starting line at the Bronx High School of Science on West 205th Street.

Race Weather & Climate

Late summer weather in New York's Bronx borough brings some of the city's warmest conditions of the year, as the city's average monthly temperatures in August range between 83°F and 69°F. On the day of the race (Aug. 28), the average high is 84°F and the average low is 69°F, while rainfall totals average just over 4 inches for the month.


$40 for the half marathon, if registered by July 13, 2011
$45 between July 14 - August 27
$50 on the day of the race
