2015 Rock and Roll Brooklyn Half Marathon - Race Results

There's another half marathon in the County of Kings, and today, Oct. 10th marked the first Rock and Roll Brooklyn Half Marathon. The Rock and Roll series came to Brooklyn a few years back and, after holding a 10K for several years, the series stepped up to the half marathon distance this year.

To see how you or your friends did today, check out the Rock and Roll Brooklyn Half Marathon results (new link). This page shows the top finishers by default, but you can search by name, bib number, age group, and other criteria. To find more details about today's race, see the race coverage page. You can find results for the previous Rock and Roll Brooklyn races (10Ks) at the race results page.

The overall winners were Birhanu Dare Kemal of New York in 1:05:02 for the men, and Salome Kosgei of Kenya in 1:15:51 for the women. Other notable top finishers: Ben Bruce, the noted distance runner (and husband of Stephanie Rothstein Bruce) came in fourth among men in 1:06:51, while New York City's Lesley Higgins of New York Athletic Club was third among women in 1:20:07.

Congrats to all participants. And if you're interested in the 2016 Rock and Roll Brooklyn Half Marathon, it will be held on Oct. 8th.
