Start Waves and Corrals


In 2019, runners will begin their journey on Prospect Park’s Center Drive before taking the race onto Brooklyn’s streets. (See start map.)

For the second year in a row, the course will take runners over the Manhattan Bridge and up the FDR Drive before a crosstown dash on 42nd Street and a turn north on 7th Avenue, through Times Square, and into Central Park. (See course map.

This year’s less hilly Central Park route finishes just north of Tavern on the Green and will feature a shorter post-race walk-off for runners to exit the park and start their celebrations. (See finish map.)

For security reasons, the staging area and corrals are for runners (and official guides for athletes with disabilities) only.
