The race, held entirely in Prospect Park, had great representation from local running clubs including Prospect Park Track Club and North Brooklyn Runners. And for a first-time event, things seemed to run quite smoothly.
John Paul (JP) Montes of Brooklyn was the men's winner of the inaugural Brooklyn Marathon with a time of 2:43:13, while Kelly Gillen of Manhattan took the women's division in 3:14:20.
New York Magazine did a nice article on the Brooklyn Marathon with a focus on Montes.
