Description

Celebrate health and longevity at this four-mile race in Brooklyn's Prospect Park. Namesake Al Gordon exemplified NYRR’s motto, Run for Life. A standout track runner in college, Gordon had an 80-year career in finance and was an NYRR board member and benefactor. He started running marathons in his 80s and exercised regularly until the end of his life in 2009—at age 107. Lace up in Gordon's honor!

This event is part of our 9+1 program for guaranteed entry to the 2018 TCS New York City Marathon.

Live unofficial results are available during the race at liveresults.nyrr.org. Features include leaderboards, map tracking, and an individual runner search that can be shared on Facebook and Twitter.

Course Info

The course takes runners over slightly more than one loop of Prospect Park. Check back soon for a course map.

Mile 1: Start in the middle of the park on Center Drive and head east. Turn left on the park’s main loop drive and head north, ascending Brooklyn Hill.

Mile 2: Follow the road to the left (west) over flat and gently rolling terrain.

Mile 3: Continue west, then south down a long, gentle hill. Prospect Park Lake will be on your left, and the terrain is flat and to gently rolling.

Mile 4: With the lake still on your left, head west, then curve north. Turn left onto Center Drive to finish at your starting point.
