United Airlines NYC Half Marathon

2020 Event Date:  March 15, 2020

Every year, Half Marathon Calendar USA receives a high quantity of emails from many international folks, looking for the next year’s date for the NYRR United Airlines NYC Half Marathon, wanting to plan their trip to New York City.  And every year, NYRR posts the date extremely late compared to the general half marathon industry, especially for such a large race.  Unfortunately, Half Marathon Calendar USA does not have the date.  Please do not email us for the date.  We will post the date when NYRR announces the date for the event.  We understand, it is a significant inconvenience for international travelers, with the date being posted so late every year, but we have no influence and no role in when they announce their date.

NOT WALKER FRIENDLY - Must maintain an Average of 13:45 minute mile or faster. The event has a 3 hour max time limit. There will be a sweeper bus.

The NYRR United Airlines NYC Half Marathon takes place annually in March.  In 2017, there were 19,387 total finishers.  The event is one of very few that shut down Time Square in New York City.  The first half of the course is mostly around Central Park, with some hilly stretches.  The course then hits the city around mile 7 with more downhill and flat stretches, finishing on Water Street at Wall Street.


Unknown at this time with no date set yet

TRAVEL:   The the 2 best options, depending on where you are staying in New York City, are either to fly into Newark International Airport (EWR) in New Jersey, and drive in (or take the train from Newark to Penn Station), or fly into JFK (but you will face long lines at this airport adding hours on to your travel time and commute).  Newark is especially recommended for international travelers.
