NYC Half Marathon 2022: time, street closures & more

The 2022 NYC Half Marathon takes place this Sunday, March 20, which means city streets will be flooded with runners while drivers search for alternate routes to get around thanks to dozens of street closures. 

The United Airlines NYC Half Marathon is back after a 2-year hiatus, with around 25,000 runners expected to run the course, which stretches from Brooklyn to Manhattan.

Runners will start the race at 7 A.M sharp in Prospect Park Brooklyn and make their way to Central Park, passing through Times Square along the way; this is the only city event other than New Year’s Eve that closes Time Square to traffic.
