This NYCRUNS-produced event benefiting St. Nicks Alliance hit  the streets running in 2012 and quickly became one of the most popular road races in Brooklyn. This year we welcome back Dime as a title sponsor and expect the race to be bigger and better than ever!

Please note that you may register to either run or walk; walkers will not be timed. See pricing schedule below for details. All amenities are the same for all participants. This page is for individual registration only; group/family registration for the walk is available at m5k.org.


The one loop 3.1 mile course will take you on a tour of North Brooklyn’s hottest neighborhoods before returning you to the finish for a post-race vittles and awards.
