All worth it just for the iconic CONEY ISLAND finish. Run your hear out though Brooklyn and be rewarded with the beach and boardwalk (and the food! most of the conession stands were open) at the finish! Running down the board walk is a memory I will never forget, the rest of the course is Brooklyn, nothing special for locals (except the roads are closed) but the finish makes it all worth it.

I didnt want to miss out on the awesome race bling this race offers so I ran this as a remote runner (race directors know what is up- some of us NEED our bling and can't always make it to events - these guys have remote options for all of their races and even offer a 4th medal if you run the entire series of 3 races - you can do all remote, one remote rest in person etc) anyway the bling /swag was awesome! Amazing medal and really cool designed gender specific tech tees! Def worth it to run as a remote runner if you love race bling as much as i do.

I can't comment on the course/ aid (i hear they are both good) and the course looks like a great one from the photos (and they have good backdrops for photos) also again I wasnt there but they have on course entertainment (i think), pretty awesome and they seem to have decent post race experience, I can say that I received email updates on the race (they were expecting bad weather) made me feel more included but also very responsive for people running in person.

this is a great local trail race in the suburbs of NYC (easy access from nyc) that is well run (hehehe) scenic, challenging, has well marked trails, is fun and historic. They have great swag (tech shirts, cool medals, and a good post race experience. I run and been a volunteer at this race, everyone is friendly, you get that local feel mixed with the professionally run.

A fun NYC Central Park 10K for women only. Its 2 loops of central park so nothing special in terms of coruse for locals, however the crowds, the early summer-ish weather and the pros that usually run this race make it great for tourists and locals. The medals are pretty cool too. I'd run it again and again

This is an amazing local race! Starts and ends on a beautiful farm (profits go towards farm too). I've run it 3 times (they have a 7 Mile distance also) the RD is great! Awesome swag and killer post race food. Aid stations had a lot of different stuff (candy!) and seemed to be manned by happy local kids (and parents) the course is hilly, plenty of room not crowded and the medals are big! and very well designed
