      Hi Mark, Great team name! We love the NYRR half marathons. They have several all year, including the NYC Half, the Brooklyn Half, the Fred Lebow Manhattan Half, and the Staten Island Half. You can check out http://www.nyrr.org to find out the information. The NYC Half is a lottery and the others are first come/first serve (or are in 2016 – the Brooklyn Half may change in 2017 due to its popularity).
