Join the PAWS NY Team for the NYCRUNS 2022 Brooklyn Marathon & Half Marathon!

The NYCRUNS Brooklyn Marathon & Half Marathon are BACK! PAWS NY is excited to announce that we are an Official Charity Partner of the NYCRUNS 2022 Brooklyn Marathon & Half Marathon on April 24, 2022.

Pick your route and get ready to challenge yourself! The new route starts in North Brooklyn and winds around the waterfront, which takes you by the historic Williamsburg, Manhattan, and Brooklyn Bridges, while delivering the magnificent views of Manhattan. From there, the route heads up the grand concourses of Fulton Street and Flatbush Avenue before passing through Grand Army Plaza and into historic brownstone Brooklyn. Half Marathoners finish up in Prospect Park, while Full Marathoners will continue on to Coney Island and back, also ending in Prospect Park.
