About This Activity

The Brooklyn Mile is a non-profit, point-to-point road race that runs along Kent Avenue and through the heart of Williamsburg. All monies earned from the Brooklyn Mile will benefit Girls on the Run NYC. With a motto of "learn. dream. live. run.", Girls on the Run seeks to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.

The mile is an iconic distance; unique in its ability to stoke the fire of the most competitive runner, but also unique in its ability to generate wide appeal to people of all running experience levels, including beginners!

Brooklyn's only road mile course is USATF-certified, lightning fast and, well, awesome. The race starts south of the Williamsburg Bridge in North Brooklyn, proceeds north underneath the beautiful span and then along Kent Avenue toward the finish at East River State Park. There are many great aspects of this event's 9 waves including the Friends & Family Mile, the invite-only Fast Movers races, and the Men's and Women's 4 x 1/4 mile road relays!
