It’s time to lace up those sneakers, Park Slope runners, because the Jackrabbit Battle of Brooklyn 10 Miler is almost here. The race, now in its third year, will take place at Prospect Park’s Nethermead on Sunday, August 19 from 8:00 am – noon. Registration is $35 before August 18 and $40 on race day.
The race commemorates the largest battle of the Revolutionary War, which was fought on the soil of Brooklyn 235 years ago. Participants will have the option of racing the entire 10 miles individually or as part of a 3-person relay team. The race course will be three loops of Prospect Park, taking you past several of the sites where the original Battle of Brooklyn was fought.
This would totally be up my history nerd ally if I could run further than the length of my apartment without passing out.
