NYC Lantern Run Guide (CLICKABLE PDF)

Run a 5K, 10K, or Half-Marathon through a beautifully designed course. Note that course is looped for longer distances.
A smaller, more private setting focusing on the run itself.
A coordinator will be able to hand-time your run and record finishing times. Coordinator will also be in charge of setting up the course and providing water/snacks.
Course Map & Parking

Prospect Park may be confusing to some. However, we’ve made the route as simple as possible. There are still five main cross intersections that may be confusing; otherwise always run straight on the main path.

Follow the Orange signs and Directional Signage!

On the northern tip of the park, runners need to make a hard RIGHT when West Dr. become East Dr.

Intersection of Lake Dr. and East Dr. is 4-way – Go STRAIGHT

Just after East Dr. becomes West Dr. there is a fork at S. Lake Drive – Stay on the RIGHT

West Drive forks at Centre Drive – Go LEFT (don’t go on Centre Drive)

West Dr. splits and comes back together – Stay on the RIGHT
