East River Park

Ok Ladies. So the men made you brunch. You laughed, you cried, you all got sore right arms the next day. If you missed MFB’s pasta, too bad, he’s off this weekend, cause it’s your turn to bring your aprons out and prove to the men that you can grill with the big boys. That’s right, this year the men’s brunch by the ladies will be an old school BBQ!


Both genders will be tired after running/cheering/volunteering their hearts out for NBR at Front Runner’s Pride Run team points race, so we don’t want the ladies slaving away in the kitchen into the wee hours the night before. So after Ladies, we need volunteers, salads, charcoal, meat, beverages and everything else to prove to the men that you can out do them in pulling off a brunch.

We need some very special volunteers to get there early and hold a spot of us, and since your lovely social crew all have Y chromosomes, we need some general female aid to pull this off in general, so sign up ladies.

Oh, and least us not forget that there will be a surprise contest for the men that will try to rival the epic display of strength that was the Ladies Arm Wrestling Tournament.

The Bins (Northside of McCarren Park Track)

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:

  1.  Dun-well (Mesorole between Humboldt & Bushwick)
  2.  The General aka the home of the lucky charms donut (Bowery between Rivington & Delancey)
  3.  Doughnut Plant (Grand & Norfolk)
  4.  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

NYRR Team Points Race, Women’s Mini 10K, Brunch, Ladies Arm Wrestling Tournament, & Afterparty by nbrwebjohn

Hey Girl. It’s time we did something for you for all you do for us. Ain’t nothing mini about this weekend’s brunch.

We have a tradition in NBR, of the men making brunch for the ladies after the mini 10k club points race, and then the ladies making brunch for the men after Portugal day. Apparently, NYRR didn’t get that memo, and they scheduled both those races for the same weekend. Sadness and confusion set in. But then a solution was decided upon, and all rejoiced.


So, as per another tradition, ladies first (don’t worry men, the ladies will be treating you guys after the pride run on the 28th).

Mini 10k Post Race Brunch for the Ladies and Arm Wrestling Tournament
This Saturday, June 14th @ 11am.

Miranda Römer Luna has graciously offered her roof for this event, check out the google group link below for the actual address so the NSA doesn’t track her down.

Gentlemen, this is your chance to shine, but let’s keep the needed prep the day of to a minimum so we don’t make a mess of Miranda’s kitchen. Sign up now guys and let people know what you’re bringing, so we don’t end up with no ice, 15 gallons of orange juice, 1 bottle of champagne and a very sad kitty.

This year there will be an official Arm Wrestling Tournament with a not so amazing grand prize. Prepare yourself ladies, this brunch isn’t all about pampering you after a hard days run (although it is also about that).

Who needs “brunch” when have sand, sun and all of NBR right there?

Help us make this beach blanket bash a blast by signing up to bring food and or drink to the party here.
