Monday Night Miles in Prospect Park

Monday Night Miles in Prospect Park

The first-ever NYRR Brooklyn R-U-N 5K welcomed more than 4,600 runners to Prospect Park on Monday night for a 3.1-miler and an opportunity to kick back with friends after work.

And after. #skinnyarm #bkr_u_n5k

Peter Geithner was first across the finish line in 15:57. Askale Merachi was winner on the women’s side in 17:54.

After the race—and the post-race cool down...

I ran a 5K in less than 30 minutes. Now that's a personal victory worth celebrating. #BKr_u_n5K

Runners enjoyed lawn games, food truck fare, sweet treats…

 And craft beer specials from area breweries.

And we’re doing it all again! The sold-out NYRR R-U-N 5K takes place in Central Park on Thursday, July 27, and spots are still available for the Percy Sutton Harlem 5K Run on August 26—don’t miss out on this fun distance!
