The McCarren 5K & 10K was originally launched in Greenpoint/Williamsburg in 2012 as a 5K race/walk. It swiftly captured the hearts and feet of local runners and walkers including powerhouse running club, North Brooklyn Runners (NBR) with its rockin' route that goes to the water's edge and through new and old neighborhood charms. The heart part is this run/walk also supports a great local cause: supplemental summer camp for local community youth! For 2019, a 10K loop has been added due to popular request.
YOUR PARTICIPATION ENABLES A FUN AND ENRICHING SUMMER CAMP EXPERIENCE FOR OUR LOCAL YOUTH! Day trips to museums, plays, state parks and other fun and engaging activities by local youth majority from low/moderate income households.
