Monday Run-Day in Prospect Park
How was your Monday? More than 4,700 runners warmed up their week with 3.1 speedy miles in Prospect Park at the second annual NYRR Brooklyn R-U-N 5K. Run over rolling hills on a sultry evening, the race was a great opportunity to kick back after a day at work and enjoy some sweaty camaraderie in a festive summer atmosphere.
The winners were David Kilgore of the New York Athletic Club in 15:56 and Ingrid Wells of the Dashing Whippets Running Team in 17:45. Everyone stayed cool—or attempted to—with misting stations along the course and at the finish, as well as post-race People’s Pops popsicles. Also on offer were lawn games, food trucks, and specials at local Brooklyn hangouts.
