In partnership with
The McCarren 5K & 10K, originally launched in Greenpoint/Williamsburg by St. Nicks Alliance in 2012 as a 5K run/walk to engage the community and raise money for local youth education. It swiftly captured the feet and hearts of local runners and walkers including powerhouse running club, North Brooklyn Runners (NBR). Feet dig into this rousing route that takes them to the water's edge and through new and old neighborhood charms. The heart part is there is no healthier way to support a great local cause: the registration fee supports summer camp activities for the community’s youth! 2020’s vision for this event is to include a 10K option that debuted in 2019 and was a hit!
YOUR PARTICIPATION ENABLES A FUN AND ENRICHING SUMMER CAMP EXPERIENCE FOR OUR LOCAL YOUTH! You’ll help expand minds and broaden smiles! Proceeds go to fund art supplies, environmental projects, day trips (museums, theater, state & amusement parks) and activities that bring a super summer to our youth majority from low/moderate-income households.
A great Tech t-shirt will be the giveaway for this race and our usual post-race spread will greet you at the finish line. Bag check and toilets will be provided. Water will be available on the course.
