2013 Prospect Park Turkey Trot - Race Results

Cold, windy weather couldn't keep hardy souls from coming out to Prospect Park early on Thanksgiving morning to take part in the annual turkey trot. More than 2,200 runners finished this year, marking another advance sellout for the event. (See the 2013 Prospect Park turkey trot results.)

In fact, the five-mile race, put on the the Prospect Park Track Club and sponsored by JackRabbit Sports, sold out two weeks before the event. Brooklyn has become the home of a number of new races in recent years, but the Prospect Park turkey trot remains one of the most popular. Despite the weather, who can pass up the chance to burn off some calories and mingle with friends old and new before sitting down to a day of coma-inducing eating and TV viewing?

If you live in Brooklyn and are looking for some folks to run with, look into becoming a member of the Prospect Park Track Club.

Congrats to all who took part and got their Thanksgiving off to a healthy start (no matter what they may have done afterward).

2013 Brooklyn Marthon - Course Map, Runner Tracking, & More

The Brooklyn Marathon, the first new marathon to be held in NYC in years, celebrates its third edition this Sunday, Nov. 17th, and here is some information you'll want to know whether you're running or watching.

See below for details on the third annual Brooklyn Marathon.

As before, the course consists of nine full or partial loops of Prospect Park (NYCRuns, the organizers, hope to one day move the race out onto the streets). More information:
Where's a good place to watch the Brooklyn Marathon and see the lead runners finish? Here's what NYCRuns head honcho Steve Lastoe advised in an email:
Find a spot not far from the South Brooklyn Running Club water station on West Drive and then head to the finish line when the first runners pass by—you should have about 10 minutes. If you need a little more time than that, the North Brooklyn Runners Station on East Drive should do it. 
Good luck to all the runners in the 2013 Brooklyn Marathon. And speaking of new marathons in NYC, NYCRuns will once again be holding its Central Park Marathon and Half Marathon next year, on Feb. 23rd.

2013 NYC Marathon - RESULTS

Latvia's Jelena Prokopcuka (3rd place) motoring past Mile 24.

The 2013 NYC Marathon went off as planned, getting back on track after its last-minute cancellation last year due to Hurricane Sandy. You can find NYC Marathon results here (unofficial, as of race night). 

You can view the results in a number of ways:
At the NYC Marathon results page you'll also find out how to get a finisher's badge, buy official Marathon finisher photos and clothing, and get answers to common questions about the race results.
