Thanks to you for your volunteering efforts at team fluid stations such as at the NYC Half, Brooklyn Half and NYC Marathon. NBR earned FOUR Team Spots! This means NBR has four entries to this year’s NYC Marathon.
Want one of those spots? Please fill out this form by no later than 11pm Tuesday, July 22nd! You have only ONE WEEK!
The NBR Team Spots will be selected and announced by July 30th or sooner so those chosen can start training!
Check out the previous NBR team spots awardees.
1. Do I have to have applied for this year’s marathon lottery to be eligible?
No, but it is preferable if you did.
2. If I am awarded a team spot, do I have to pay for my entry?
3. Is there any chance NYRR will give us more spots?
Sorry not for this year!
4. If I am a fast runner, will that help my chances?
5. What *will* help my chances then?
Participation in NBR via showing up for races and group runs, volunteering, helping out with projects and other activities, and general involvement. Being an NBR leader or run leader is also great, but not required.
6. Do I have to be a current member of NYRR and be affiliated with NBR?
Any other questions? Please email NBR Team Captains.

Mishka Vertin, the Donut Queen herself, is gracing us with her presence for the Donut Run this Saturday! Meet at the bins at 10am for 10 easy miles, but 4 race pace donuts. Finish all your donuts and be crowned royalty.
For those of you scratching your heads, the donut run is quite simple:We run to 4 different donut shops and attempt to eat a donut at each shop. Anyone who eats a full donut at all four locations will be crowned donut royalty, which is a Very Important Achievement.
The pace starts out at about medium/easy and, for those taking their eating seriously, devolves into a queasy jog. Since we stop at four spots, if you fall behind, you’ll be able to catch up with us at each donut shop.
We will stop at the below donut shops in this order:
- Dun-well (Mesorole between Humboldt & Bushwick)
- The General aka the home of the lucky charms donut (Bowery between Rivington & Delancey)
- Doughnut Plant (Grand & Norfolk)
- Peter Pan (Manhattan between Norman and Meserole)
The route is 8.4 miles and if you’re looking for a fun way to do your long run tomorrow, why not combine the bridge run with the donut run?
There are surprises in store for the new members of the royal family, so drink lots of water tonight, stretch out those stomach muscles, and call Dimitri for tips!
Sweet dreams of donuts,
Anne, Mishka, and Brian
