New York > NYRR Half Marathon Series: Staten Island Half Marathon
New York-Staten Island, NY



Sunday, October 9, 2011

Event Details

The final race of the year in the New York Road Runners Half Marathon Grand Prix, the Staten Island leg of the five-race series is the finishing touch of the series of races through New York City's five boroughs, and takes the estimated 4,000 runners who compete in this race each year past sights such as the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, Fort Wadsworth and the Upper and Lower New York Bay.

This out-and-back race takes participants along a course made up entirely of paved city streets, much of it with views of the bay and the South Beach area, from which runners can see Hoffman Island out in the bay. At South Beach the turnaround back toward the finish begins, taking the same course run for the first 6.5 miles in reverse back to the finish line near Richmond County Bank Stadium.

Race Weather & Climate

The month of October brings cooler and usually drier weather to the Staten Island area, as temperatures during the month average between 66°F and 47°F, while rainfall averages about 3.6 inches for the month (making it the area's second-driest month of the year).
