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.
