Subway is by far the easiest way to travel to the race.

Take the Q train or S (Franklin Ave. Shuttle) to the Prospect Park stop (B train does not run on weekends). Take the "Lincoln Rd." exit out of the station, turn right onto Lincoln Rd., after 1/2 block cross Ocean Ave. and continue straight into the Park another 100 meters, turn right at the light onto East Dr., Race-Day Central will be on the grassy area on your left.

You can also take the F train to 15 St.-Prospect Park stop and walk about one mile across the park to the race.

We strongly recommend taking public transportation as street parking is very limited.

However, if you are dropping someone off or picking them up, the Lincolnd Rd. entrance is the closest entrance to Race-Day Central, and start and finish (about 200 meters walk)
