Central Park, New York, NY

Join us for the 2024 Central Park Half Marathon and 5K! Take a wintry tour of the spectacular urban park's rolling hills, and test your fitness going into the spring season.

If you haven’t raced in Central Park in winter you’re in for an off-season treat. While you’re running the course, you’ll forget all about the crowded streets of 5th Avenue and Central Park West a few yards away as you get swept up in the magic of running in one of the city’s most beloved spots. Picture a quiet and peaceful park, with the sounds of runners’ footsteps inspiring you to keep on keeping on.

5K - 8:00 AM
HALF - 9:00 AM


The half marathon begins on West Drive near 96th Street, and will have you run two and a half loops of the park across 72nd Street and up Harlem Hill before finishing on the 102nd Street transverse. The 5K begins a bit further south and finishes in the same spot.

All NYCRUNS courses are USATF certified.
