BROOKLYN - Thousands of runners hit the pavement Saturday as part of the Airbnb Brooklyn Half Marathon.

About 27,000 runners participated in the 13.1-mile race that started at the Brooklyn Museum and finished at the Coney Island boardwalk.

Many runners told News 12 that they enjoyed the panoramic views of Brooklyn.

Lodging-rental site Airbnb, which sponsored the event, treated runners to an after-party at MCU Park.

Some runners said after going more than a dozen miles, all they want is a nap and some food.
