Club Night details…

Club Night is big celebration with other teams in NYC. NYRR will be honoring the best age group and team performances in 2015 as well as the team with the best spirit (which NBR has won twice already!). Our very own Alex Walsh was nominated for men in the 40-44 age group.

Screenshot 2016-01-31 18.25.34.pngAlex Walsh, long time Sunday Funday Long Run leader and former Race Coordinator, ran every single club points race in 2015 and scored for NBR every time except for 1 race. (He missed top 3 NBR at the NYC Marathon and came in 4th for the team at 2:42:32). Alex also finished first in his age group at Grete’s Great Gallop, top 3 age group in three other club points races, and top 10 age group in five other races. Let’s go cheer on Alex Walsh for his well deserved nomination!

The NBR men finished top 5 in the Open A standings and will receive a Freddie award!

There’ll be food and drinks and after all the awards are given, a DJ comes out and we dance/compete with the other teams.

We hope to see you there!

Volunteer for the NBR NYC Half Fluid Station


Sign up to volunteer at the NYC Half Mile 12 water station on March 20th!

  • Yep, it’s time to start registering and you can do so here.
  • Read some testimonies from last year’s runners as they passed by our table.
  • Read a brilliant post by our very own Helen Clarkson about the volunteering experience.
  • I know I know everyone’s going bananas over the BROOKLYN Half registration (well, at least all 332 of us who managed to sign up by 12:30!)

However, who among us did NOT feel that same joy and glee when we didn’t get into the NYC HM? If you’re like me and didn’t get accepted, then you’ll wanna do the next BEST THING and volunteer at the NBR Fluid Station 10!! We already have 13 NBRiors (love that term!) registered, let’s see how many more friendly faces we can get to join our crew.

And naturally, please follow up with our volunteer coordinators or any of the NBR leadership if you have questions or would like to know more about this volunteer opportunity.

This now counts as you +1 credit! towards your 9+1 for the 2017 NYC Marathon. It can also help you earn a coveted NBR Golden Goat patch.


NYRR Job Description: Prepare fluids for our runners. Active in set up and break-down of the station.
