Saturday, May 21, 2016 – Right after the Brooklyn Half.
Coney Island Beach – (on sand in front of The Wonder Wheel)

bklyhalfparty2016The best little DIY Team Picnic all Summer!

Brooklyn Half is a teams points race, but traditionally, we prefer to celebrate in the open air on the beach at Coney Island (I mean, you spent the morning running there right? so why not enjoy it?)

It takes a team to make a Team Beach Party happen, so please lend a hand and sign up here. We’ll need help collecting food, drinks, blankets, etc for the beach, as well as kind souls to volunteer to drive supplies down to the beach and help set up. 2/3 of your Social Crew will be out of town, and the other 1/3 will be using this party as reason to run harder to get to the beach even faster!  More details to come soon, but please SIGN UP.

RSVP on the Facebook Event.
