NYRR Brooklyn Half -New Balance Training Run #2 – 12 Miles

nbrbklynhalftrainrunnumber1April 19, Saturday
8:00 AM

Meet Up Location: Prospect Park North Entrance by the benches (see Route)


Hello NBR Family and Friends!

Are you training for the NYRR BK Half or just wanna come for a run with a group of runners? Thanks to NYRR and New Balance, we are hosting our second and final training run for everyone from NBR to other non NBRs!

We will split into different pace groups, we are offering from 7:00 pace to 12:00 pace. Look for pacers in NBR shirts. We will have a staggered start (start with 12:00 to 7:00) so everyone finishes the run around the same time:) Route here.

After the run we will head over to Urban Rustic which is located right where we finish (N12th St. & Union Ave) for some coffee and recovery food.

Safety first! Don’t forget to bring your ID, metro card, cash, and water/Gu. Unfortunately, we do not have anywhere to store your bags, so def. pack light!

We are excited to host this event and happy to have you all join us! Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us here.

See you on April 19 at 8:00AM at the North entrance of Prospect Park by the benches!

NBR Double Points Night at JackRabbit in PARK SLOPE!!!!

276949_228513440555544_1826012701_nTuesday, May 6th
6:00PM – 8:00 PM

JackRabbit Sports
151 7th Ave Brooklyn, NY 11215

It’s double points night…

JRS has a points program. Every dollar you spend you get a point. 100 points equals 10 dollars store credit. You runners would be able to earn double points. So on that night only during 6-8 if they spend 100 dollars they would earn 200 points instead of 100. So you would earn 20 dollars store credit instead of 10.

Just mention NBR at the register!!!!

More Events to be listed soon…
