Start Time: 7:00 PM

The Race

We've had so much fun with the Ice Cream Social on Roosevelt Island that we decided to bring it home to Brooklyn for a sweet June evening in Prospect Park. Join us for an evening 5K, a soft serve cone, and a real nice time overall. This race is currently capped at 500 participants, so we recommend you register early.


The race will start and finish near the entrance to Wellhouse Drive not far from the LeFrak Center, Oriental Pavilion, and Smorgasburg. We will provide a course map very soon.


Bag check and toilets will be provided. Water will be available on the course, and in addition to ice cream, fresh fruit and more will make up the usual great NYCRUNS post race spread to greet you at the finish line. The giveaway for this race will be a tech t-shirt*.

*Sizes are guaranteed – if we don’t have your size at the race, email within two days of the race and we’ll ship your shirt to you. Make sure to include the race name, your name, size and shipping address.


Pre-Race packet pickup is TBD.


If registering on or before 5/17 you can choose to have your bib mailed to you for an additional fee of $15. You must choose this option when registering and the bib must be mailed to the address you enter at that time. Shirts will not be mailed; they will be available to pick up at the race. Shipping to domestic US addresses only.
