THE RACE

Join us as we return to Prospect Park for a wonderful spring 5K benefitting CAMBA and kick off the countdown to NYCRUNS Brooklyn Half Marathon with a 10 mile training run.

Both the 5K and 10 Mile races are timed.

BENEFITING CAMBA

When you register for the race, you'll have the opportunity to donate to CAMBA. CAMBA is one of the city’s largest and most trusted community-based organizations helping over 65,000 people a year. Your support helps CAMBA feed the hungry, prevent homelessness, build more affordable and supportive housing, and through our college access programs, give low-income youth a solid foundation for their future. CAMBA emphasizes building economic stability by offering a variety of targeted services and resources, including adult literacy classes, job readiness and placement services.

For example:
$100 provides food to a hungry family for a week.
$250 provides textbooks to a class of immigrants to learn English and access jobs.
$500 supports college prep classes for low-income youth.
$1,000 helps provide legal services for families at risk of eviction and homelessness.

Your support helps transform lives and together we can build a better and brighter future for our communities.

THE COURSE

The 5K course is comprised of just under one full loop. The 10 Miler is approximately three full loops of Prospect Park.

All NYCRUNS courses are USATF-certified.
