Event details and schedule

This NYCRUNS-produced event hit the streets running in 2012 and quickly became one of the most popular road races in Brooklyn.

Course: The one loop 3.1 course will take you on a tour of North Brooklyn's hottest neighborhoods before returning you to the finish for a post-race vittles and awards. See course map here.

Time Limit: The official time limit is 1 hour.

5K Awards: Awards will be given to the top 3 male and female runners overall and the top 3 finishers in each ten year age group. The awards ceremony will begin no later than 10:15 a.m.

Packet Pickup: Pre-race packet pickup at the Brooklyn Running Company (222 Grand Street) on Friday May 6 from 2PM-8PM.  Race-day packet pickup will be available at the start line beginning at 7:30 AM.  We strongly encourage you to pick up your race materials in advance of race day to avoid lines.

Amenities: A great techie shirt will be the giveaway for this race and the usual great NYCRUNS post-race spread will greet you at the finish line. Bag check and toilets will be provided. Water will be available on the course.

Directions: Take the L  to Bedford Avenue or the G to Nassau St.  Please check MTA Trip Planner for up-to-date and detailed mass transit directions and Google Maps for driving directions. Parking is limited at all of our events; we strongly encourage you to use mass transit.
