DIRECTIONS

Subway

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

Take the Q train or S (Franklin Ave. Shuttle train) 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, but it's a full 1-mile walk across the park to the race.

Or enter "East Dr. & E. Lake Dr., Brooklyn, NY 11225" into any navigation app

Driving

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)

Enter "Lincoln Rd. and Ocean Ave., Brooklyn, NY" into any navigation app or click here to open location in Google maps.
