This is a beautiful 5 kilometer run (just over 3 miles) over the rolling hills of Prospect Park, Brooklyn. The registration and meeting point will be located inside the park, just beyond the entrance at Bartel-Pritchard Square on the corner of Prospect Park West and 15th Street. The nearest subway stop is the 15th Street-Prospect Park stop on the F/G.
The race will begin approximately ¼ mile inside the park entrance. Runners will follow the park’s main loop drive, completing a 5 kilometer lap of the park, to finish near the starting point. You’ll run the course’s only significant uphill in the first mile; after that, it’s flat/gently rolling hills, with a long, fast downhill between miles 2 and 3. Water will be available at the half-way mark and at the finish.
This race is short and flat enough to be ideal even for first-time racers; more experienced competitors will appreciate the opportunity for fast times. Many runners have PRed (achieved a personal record) in this race, and everyone will have fun knowing they have supported and helped the LGBT community.
