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

Come out to this workshop on training for the heat. With tips from various running experts who regularly run Badwater 135 miler (where 120 degrees F is a cool year), let’s learn more about how we can train and race our very best in the heat.
This run will be immediately after the Wednesday night run, so hopefully you are nice and hot and sweaty as a starter.
Attire: hot pants.

Well look at the time. It appears to be beach season again. What? you can’t go to the beach this weekend cause you have to run/cheer/volunteer for the club points awesomeness that is the Brooklyn Half? Perfect! Let’s all meet at the beach for an after party! 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.
We’ll be having a meet up at the park friday night at 7pm to load some some non-perishable goodies into Colin’s trunk which he has graciously volunteered to us.
Stayed tuned for more details and time schedule for the photo of the year
