McCarren Park Recreation Center
776 Lorimer Street, Brooklyn, NY 11222 (between Bayard & Driggs, right across from the track)

Happy New Year 2014!

If you are new to NBR, or had only been to a few runs and would love to hear more about us? You only saw us on FB or Google and was wondering who we are? Or if you have been a memeber for a while and want to bring your friends to meet NBR?

When lovely Aja Marsh founded North Brooklyn Runners in January 2009, it was only a few of us running a few days a week, and it was super easy to get to know everyone. Due to the great NBR spirit , our group became so big over the past 5+ years. Today New Member Coffee events help us connect with each and every new or old member of NBR. We look forward to seeing you on Feb 1st!

Everyone, new & existing members encouraged to come! Join us for coffee, to meet fellow NBRiors new & old, and learn more about the team.

 ——————————————————

A few additional notes:

  • Free coffee and bagels for ALL NBRiors!!
  • There will be coffee and bagels, but feel free to Bring Your Own Baked Goods to share with the crew.  Colin will be bringing some sugary yummy something!
  • Join us for brunch across the street immediately afterwards to wish Eduardo Aponte off to his year of study aboard.

Eduardo ran his first race with NBR in July 2011 when he was just 17. Last year he was nominated for NYRR age group runner of the year, and has been a dedicated member of NBR even with his busy school schedule. He will be traveling to England to continue his studies, so let’s say goodbye by going to  post-coffee hour brunch

  • Where: Cu29 Copper, on the other side of the track (N12th btwn Union/Driggs (right next to Urban Rustic) has set aside space just for us
  • What: cheap brunch and a bottomless drink special
  • Why: cuz brunch is fun, cuz we run to eat, cuz Eduardo is awesome
  • When: after new member coffee hour (Cu29 opens at 11:30)

North Brooklyn Runners’ Fundraiser: Sneaker Drive 2013 by nbrwebjohn

NBR2-52af3d343f65fHey NBR friends and family! We have joined forces with a few other running clubs (Dashing Whippets, NYAC, Mercury Masters, and VCTC, so far) to help raise funds for NYRR’s Sneaker Drive. All funds raised will go towards purchasing proper running shoes (at a discount) for needy children who participate in NYRR’s no-fee youth running programs. A lot of these kids have to make do by running in street shoes, basketball shoes, etc. Your donation – of any amount – will go a long way.

NBR Holiday Party by nbrwebjohn

Save the date. Save your ugly sweaters. Save room for latkes.

NBRHolidayParty2013

‘Twas the night before Friday, when all thro’ the nest
Ever runner was stirring, owls, doves and the rest;
The sneakers were hung by the pool table with care,
Because Coach Chu had spilled some beer over there;
The Whippets were nestled all snug in their beds,
While we were up into the night, eating Latkes instead.
And Logan in his ‘kerchief, and Fernando in his sweater,
Said hello to the new girl, for they had just met her —
When out on the track there arose such a clatter,
We sprang from our core form to see what was the matter.
Away to the bins we all ran like a flash,
Whether forefoot or heel strike, for this was a holiday bash!

It’s that time of year again!
It’s the NBR Holiday Party!
Time to get sweaty at the track in an ugly sweater and then head on over to the nest for a very special holiday nesting night.
