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. Coordinators will also be in charge of setting up the course and providing water/snacks.
Course Map & Parking

Closest Address to Start/Finish: 153 East Dr, Brooklyn, NY 11225

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.

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
