Runners of the Popular Brooklyn Half will take to the streets beginning at 7 a.m. on Saturday.
But while competitors pound the pavement, motorists may find it difficult to navigate around certain neighborhoods, particularly Park Slope, Midwood, Sheepshead Bay and Coney Island.
The race starts near the Brooklyn Museum, goes past the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and around Grand Army Plaza before entering Prospect Park. Then, after a loop around the park, runners head onto Ocean Parkway toward Coney Island for the finish line at the boardwalk, according to the race’s website.
