We know there are a lot of other more "Popular" Half Marathons out there, but if you didn't get into one of those then check out The LESS Popular Brooklyn Half Marathon . A half marathon for the rest of us! Set your next PR along the pristine Hudson river just under the Verrazano Bridge in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. It might not be the most popular half marathon, but at least we can guarantee your entry ;)
