On April 17, 2011, the first ever Brooklyn Bun will race through Brooklyns Prospect Park. The course will take participants on a counterclockwise circuit of the Parks internal roads. Leading off the event is a 20k bike race featuring a time-trial style start. Once athletes complete the bike segment they will transition to a 5k run along the same course and finish on Center Drive. A post-race Finish Festival complete with Awards Ceremony will take place on the grass in the Nethermead.
A few months back, I posted about Team Continuum, in a thread about the 2010 NYC Marathon. Team Continuum is a group that provides immediate and vital, non- medical, assistance to cancer patients and their families where the diagnosis results in disruption, hardship and uncertainty in their everyday lives.
In order to raise funds and maximize the number of patients Team Continuum helps; they offer charity spots in various athletic races. Each year a number of athletes run the ING NYC Marathon for Team Continuum, spots are available now for the 2011 race, click the link below for entry:
