The 2019 Popular® Brooklyn Half Pre-Party presented by New Balance had a new location in 2019 due to construction on Pier 2 at Brooklyn Bridge Park; the location is Brooklyn Bridge Plaza at Brooklyn Bridge Park (corner of New Dock and Water streets).

Pre-party hours:

Registered Popular® Brooklyn Half runners must visit the pre-party to pick up their race materials, which include race number (bib) including the timing tag, New Balance tech shirt, and official bag-check bag that can be used to check race-day clothing. Number pickup is not available at the NYRR RUNCENTER, and there is no race-day pickup.

Runners who cannot visit the pre-party may send a proxy to pick up their race materials. Read more about proxy pickup
