Event details and schedule

Ladies, this race is for you!  Gentlemen, you're welcome to run, but please note that you are not eligible for awards.

Course:  Run along the super flat and scenic running path that hugs the southern edge of Brooklyn. You’ll run under the Verrazano Bridge and see the Manhattan skyline from across the harbor. It’s New York running from a whole new perspective. 5K course map here 10K course map here.
