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


‘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.

The Bins (Northside of McCarren Park Track)

10 miles. 4 kinds of donuts. So many things to be thankful for! Please join me and Brian for what will be my last NYC Donut run for a very long time! We’re going to the three best donut shops, plus one newbie. Donut Royalty (anyone who eats a full donut at ALL FOUR shops) win a free BOX OF DONUTS at Glam Doll Donuts redeemable in person ANYTIME after Jan 1, 2014! The run will end at Spritzenhaus where we can wash down all those sugared goodies.  Route Map here.

Please bring single dollar bills as we have pre-ordered donuts at several shops to make things RUN more smoothly. And don’t forget we will be heading to Spritzenhaus post-run to give our bite-by-bite donuts reviews and wash it all down with some cold brews.
