On your mark, get set, and go register for the Popular Brooklyn Half Marathon.

The race's registration officially opens at noon on Jan. 30 and it's likely it will reach capacity in just a few hours.

Last year, the race filled up with about 27,500 people just two hours and 17 minutes later, according to the New York Road Runners. 

So don't waste another minute if you had your running shoes set on this race. Here's how to register:

  • Create your New York Road Runner profile ahead of time and add your up-to-date credit card;
  • Go online here to place your order and not the NYRR app;
  • If you become a NYRR member, you'll get member pricing ($90 as opposed to $115);

Those who have met certain time standards on any half-marathon or marathon get guaranteed entry and can register from now through Jan. 23.

If you miss registration, you can still secure a spot by registering to run with the NYRR Team for Kids, which raises money so children can participate in running events nationwide. This requires participants to raise at least $500 by May 1.

The 13.1-mile 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.
