THANK YOU BROOKLYN!

Another successful Brooklyn 15K in the books! Thank you and congratulations to all of you who ran in our this year's event.  It was a beautiful day in Prospect Park, and we had so much fun once again this year in Brooklyn.

  

Thank you again  Brooklyn, NY, the Prospect Park Alliance, all of our hard working crew and volunteers including the wonderful group from Millennium Brooklyn High School, and all of our awesome sponsors.

 

The race day for 2017 is already set for April 16, 2017.  We hope to see you all there next year!

 

 


 

 

IMPORTANT NOTICE - COURSE UPDATE

PLEASE NOTE: The start/finish area for the 2016 Brooklyn 15K will be moving to the Prospect Park Bandshell area.

 

We've updated a map with the closest subway stations on either side of the park. The closest subway stop to the starting line will be the F,G Line at the 7th Avenue stop: map for reference.

 

We have made the change because we were informed that Bernie Sanders will be having a major rally at the Park

 

We suspect this will be very large and quite an event—even larger than our 15k.  While the rally is later in the day, the Secret Service and NYPD need to freeze the area for security reasons starting very early on Sunday.

About the Brooklyn 15K, 10K, 5K and Kid's 1 Mile Race


The 4th annual Brooklyn 15 Kilometer Run (The "B15") is returning this spring after three consecutive sell-out events. Prospect Park is one of the great running venues with a beautiful parkland setting in the heart of Brooklyn.  The B15 is a 3-loop course of rolling hills with giant tree-lined roads closed to traffic.  There is also a 10k run, 5k run and Kid’s 2k run to give a different distance for all category of runners and joggers.  R&A Cycles is our host for the packet pickup located a short distance from the race location in Park Slope and two blocks from the Barclay Center at Atlantic Yards.  For the destination runner, this gives a perfect opportunity to visit the best of what Brooklyn has to offer with great restaurants, pubs, hotels, and shopping.
