Brooklyn is arguably the trendiest borough in New York City, and for good reason. From historic buildings and lush parks to amazing restaurants, bars and festivals, this place has it all.
There’s no better way to see Brooklyn than to run it, and we’ve got all the reasons to join us at the 2017 Synchrony Financial Rock ‘n’ Roll Brooklyn Half Marathon.
More than a race – and true to Brooklyn – it’s a whole festival weekend of music, miles and medals.
Stay tuned … more big announcements are coming soon!
