Fifteen thousands runners will trot down Ocean Parkway from Prospect Park to Coney Island Avenue on Saturday, as a larger-than-ever Brooklyn Half Marthon takes to the streets.

The marathon will spur rolling street closures down Ocean Parkway as runners arrive on the block. They’ll reopen as the last participants come through, with every street expected to fully reopen by 11:30 a.m. The marathon ends on the Riegelmann Boardwalk, an element that, along with the street closures, drew the ire of local residents.

Along with the street closures, the following buses will be detoured from 6:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.:

  • B1, B11, B3, B35, B36, B4, B41, B6, B68, B8, B82, B9
