Take a new spin on your typical summer happy hour with a 3.1-mile loop in Prospect Park at the NYRR Brooklyn R-U-N 5K on Monday, July 16 at 6:45 PM. Bring your friends and meet some new ones—this unique New York Road Runners weeknight race is a fun way to start the week!
Picture yourself running through the tree-lined park to the beat of live music along the course, to be greeted at the finish line with People’s Pops popsicles (free for finishers!), as well as an assortment of food vendors, lawn games and more music with a DJ to hang out by.
The fun doesn’t have to stop there, though! Local spots The Adirondack and Threes Brewing will be offering drink specials all night long—just show your bib.
And as a cherry on top, all participants will receive a sweet New Balance hat. Don’t miss out—register today!
PS: Manhattanites, we know, we know — it’s in Brooklyn. But here’s the thing: Head out to Prospect Park on the 16th, then 10 days later you can invite your Brooklyn friends back to the island for the NYRR R-U-N 5K in Central Park (which is nearing capacity, so don’t delay!).
The great Brooklyn vs. Manhattan debate is sure to rage on, but racing and partying with your friends is one thing we can all agree on.
