View the map here.
It’s a 3-loop course along the Shore. You start running South and u-turn at 2nd water station. Where the U-turn sign is. Head back North towards the start/finish area and U-turn and head back South. Complete 3 loops and then finish. We will direct you to the start location on race day. The loop is 4.34 Miles long. Miles markers will be placed for every mile. Water tables will be placed at three locations on the loop providing you with 12 opportunities to pick up GU electrolyte drinks, water, and GU gels. Each will have music to keep you going.
You MUST wear your BIB on your front torso to assure that you get timed. You will go over a timing mat for each loop so that you get timing splits for every loop. LIVE! Every time you go over the timing mat your time will be uploaded to elitefeats.com or copy and paste: https://elitefeats.com/race-results.asp?ID=19639. Share this link with your family and they will see your time as you complete each loop.
We have two ceremonies, first for the top 3 male and female OVERALL. Shortly after we hold the age group ceremony. Live timing allow us to start the ceremony quickly so do not leave without your award or have a friend hold it for you. We do not mail awards.

You can complete this online by logging into your active.com account, selecting “my events” find the Brooklynite Summer Half Marathon event, and you will see the option to transfer out.
From Weather.com: Cloudy skies during the morning hours followed by sunny afternoon. High 80F. Winds SE at 10 to 15 mph. Chances of rain 40%.
Be prepared for great running weather however also be prepared for a possible shower later in the race. If rain doesn’t bother you we suggest you keep it to a minimum. Just bring a towel for drying off afterward. A hat can also help keep the rain off your face. If it does bother you we suggest a light running jacket that keeps you dry while not overheating you. Finally, if you wear layers and have a friend watching your race prepare to drop off layers with them after each loop if the temperature gets too warm for you.
The best place for them to watch is at the Finish line. ( Remember they must be careful when crossing the boardwalk as there is a lane for cyclists!) They’ll see you pass twice per loop! So, prepare them to get their cheer on! We’ll pass out some cheer equipment as well, cowbells, horns, etc.
