New York City Marathon Route
The New York Marathon passes through each of New York's five boroughs: Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, Manhattan and Staten Island.
Starting on Staten Island, runners cross the Verazono-Narrows Bridge into Brooklyn. The next twelve miles passes through several Brooklyn neighborhoods.
These include Bay Ridge, Sunset Park, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Williamsburg, and Greenpoint before reaching the half-way point at Pulaski Bridge.
The race then enters Queens. After a further two and a half miles runners leave Queens, passing over the Queensboro Bridge into Manhattan. This is the
most ominous point of the race, with many runners tiring from the climb up the bridge.
Arriving in Manhattan runners reach the 16 mile point. Only 10 more to go. The race passes along First Avenue and briefly into the Bronx, before returning to
Manhattan. After Harlem and Fifth Avenue runners reach Central Park. With only one mile to and thousands of cheering spectators the runners push on through the
park. The race then briefly leaves Central Park before returning and finishing to cheering crowds outside Tavern on the Green.
