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


The Brooklyn 15 Kilometer Run (The "B15") replaced the original Brooklyn Bun (bike-run) several years ago. The running and triathlon community asked for a Spring running event with a unique distance and a prime location. The B15 brings a 3-loop course around Prospect Park's beautiful venue with a finish close to the start in the Nethermead. There are also 10K, 5K and Kid's 1 mile courses, which makes this a family morning in Prospect Park.
