North Brooklyn Runners: A Community Running Group Serving Williamsburg, Greenpoint, Bushwick, and Beyond!

Upcoming Events

NBR regularly hosts events for members and friends– from picnics and bar crawls to training clinics and discussions. We also are committed to our community and volunteer on a regular basis, both at races and locally in the neighborhood. We’ve participated in Williamsburg Walks, It’s My Park Day, and more! Occasionally, we have meetings too, to discuss big events and projects, and voice needs and concerns.

Don’t miss these exciting upcoming events!  Scroll down for full description of events.  See you there!
