It’s springtime in Brooklyn — and that means the more ambitious among us will be setting out to run 13.1 miles down the borough’s streets on Saturday in the Brooklyn Half Marathon.

Runners will travel from the Brooklyn Museum to the Coney Island boardwalk, causing street closures throughout the city from early, early in the morning into the afternoon. The race will start in two waves, one at 7 a.m. and one at 7:45 a.m., and will allow three hours for runners to reach the finish line.
