Brooklyn Marathon (and Half Marathon) Course Overview and Strategy

The Brooklyn Marathon (and Half Marathon), hosted by NYC Runs, is definitely an interesting course and one that requires a strategy. This year will mark the first running of this new course, and over 20k people are expected to cross the starting line for the race (combined). If you're looking to do your best, don’t wing it.

And sure, the mile doesn't push the limits of your speed quite like the 400m can. But the mile is often the first distance that new runners use to anchor their understanding of the sport. It's pure and basic, but also cruel. There's no room for error in the mile.  Click "Read More" to see the full post and photo gallery.
