We'll race up South 5th Street, turn right at Bedford, and right again at the pedestrian ramp to the bridge. We will race an out and back on the bridge, with the check point under the archway of the path on the Manhattan side, and finish at the top of the pedestrian path on the Brooklyn side.

This year, if you cheer the loudest you will be rewarded with some free gear! Got a cheer squad? Be sure you pick a captain to register on Eventbrite; athletes will vote for the winner after the race!
SO, invite your cheer squad to grab a spot along the course. Reminder that the course is not closed to the public; we urge spectators and photographers to take the same caution that you should take :)
Our host crew, November Project Brooklyn, will lead a short cool down run to the Brooklyn CrossFit for the afterparty from 9:30pm until 11:30pm. We will have an informal award ceremony and celebrate! Beer for all athletes, race crew, cheer squads and photographers is on us! Supplies are limited, so feel free to bring your beer of choice as well.
