Finish and Post-Finish

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.)

Check out our full Course Description.

After you finish, you will receive a medal, a HeatsheetTM Presented by United Airlines, and a Recovery Bag Presented by Hospital for Special Surgery. After exiting Central Park at Columbus Circle, you will be able to claim your checked bag on Central Park West. All bags not claimed by 12:00 p.m. will be transported to the NYRR RUNCENTER featuring the NB Run Hub (320 West 57th Street, between 8th and 9th avenues), where they can be claimed after 3:00 p.m.

Visit the Hospital for Special Surgery Runner Recovery Zone, where you can stretch out with Hospital for Special Surgery experts.

Friends and family will not have access to the post-finish area; they should plan to meet you at the family reunion area or another location outside the post-finish area. 

Your friends and family can track you during the race and know your finish time by using the United Airlines NYC Half App Powered by Tata Consultancy Services, which will be available during race week.
