About This Activity

Join us on August 21st to make history by running the 2nd Annual Battle of Brooklyn 10 Miler in Prospect Park! 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 year we're adding a new element: "Time your Climb" sponsored by Garmin. Each runner will not only receive their splits for the three loops, you'll also receive your splits for climbing Prospect Park's big hill. In each age/gender category, there will be a "Time your Climb" winner for the fastest combined time up the hill, *and* for the most consistent times up the hill.The course features two water stops with water, energy drinks and energy gels from Powerbar. Post race we'll have more gels, recovery drink, bagels, & bananas. All race participants will receive a snazzy JackRabbit "Circle Skyline" technical tee shirt (mens or womens). Packet pickup will be available at JackRabbit stores in Manhattan and Brooklyn.
