NYRR Brooklyn R-U-N 5K

Hey Brooklyn, R-U-N? This July, challenge your friends to take part in our version of a summer evening happy hour—a 3.1 mile loop in Prospect Park.

Stick around after the race for lawn games like corn hole, giant checkers, and giant Jenga. After all that, you can head out of the park for drink specials at select Brooklyn establishments—stay tuned for more information on post-race deals.
