I’m running in the 2023 RBC Brooklyn Half Marathon for Team for Kids. The race is 13.1 miles through Prospect Park to the Coney Island Boardwalk.
The 2023 RBC Brooklyn Half is a go! The 13.1-mile course winds through Brooklyn, beginning at Prospect Park and ending at the famous Coney Island Boardwalk on Saturday, May 20. This is my all-time favorite race, thanks to the iconic CONEY ISLAND finish. Runners will be rewarded for their hard work with the beach, boardwalk, food and music that await at the finish! The experience of running down the boardwalk will stay with me forever.
