BROOKLYN - The Brooklyn Marathon was held in Prospect Park over the weekend.

While organizers saw some new faces in the crowd due to the cancellation of the New York City Marathon earlier in the month, officials limited the number of participants to 500 runners.

With so much damage to trees and the grounds in the park from Sandy, safety on the running path was a big priority this year.
