Staging Area and Start

The information below is for the 2018 United Airlines NYC Half; 2019 information will be available in fall 2018.

Check out maps of the:


The 2018 United Airlines NYC Half will start on Flatbush Avenue near Grand Army Plaza, with the entrance to the staging area at Ocean Avenue/Empire Boulevard. Runners will not be able to enter the staging area from Grand Army Plaza.

The United Airlines NYC Half will start in two waves. Your wave and corral assignments are available in your confirmation form and will be on your race number (bib). Your assignment is based on your previous best pace with NYRR or your predicted finish time and is designed to help you have a safe race experience. You can start slower corral (a later letter) or a later wave, but not a faster corral or earlier wave. 

Plan your travel to arrive at the race staging area by 6:00 a.m. (wave 1) or 6:45 a.m. (wave 2) if you are checking a bag, and by 6:30 a.m. (wave 1) or 7:15 a.m. (wave 2) if you are not checking a bag.
