McCarren Park (By Ericsson Playground, on Leonard St btwn Manhattan Ave & Bayard St)

Getting the word out about one of our upcoming team races, the McCarren 5K on May 7.

For those new to the club or unfamiliar with this particular event, the McCarren Park 5K is OUR RACE, that we help sponsor and organize with a community charity partner, St. Nick’s Alliance and NYCRuns. The race takes place on our home turf – we plan it, we throw it, we run it, we WIN it.

While still a couple months out from race day, we are starting the call for VOLUNTEERS to help put on another great McCarren 5K this year. Volunteer positions are available for race marshaling, manning water tables and running an NBR recruitment table. We have our sites set on putting together a fantastic NBR volunteer squad of around 35 people. Please sign-up here to assist:

And for all our 5K racers, registration is now open via this race registration link.  But wait, there is more…

All members of North Brooklyn Runners are offered a discounted $25 race fee – please follow this link to our google group for the registration code. (you must be logged in.)

We look forward to another great team showing and fun race alongside our community in May!

WOOO! by nbrwebjohn

Filed under: Inspiration, NBR Goings On, Races, Volunteering

A loud and enthusiastic “GO NBR!” combined with an equally loud and enthusiastic “WOOO!” is the perfect blend in a continuous wall of sound that brings chills down my spine.

PhilipPatchogueI joined NBR in 2013 with the Scotland Run being my first race under the NBR banner. I had no idea what I was in for when I ran by the cheer squad. The “GO NBR” and other chants that blended into a wall of sounds were overwhelming, I felt the chills go down my spine and it actually made my limbs feel cold. The shot of adrenaline carried me to the finish in a closing pace that I did not think was possible for me at that point in my running “career.” Don’t even get me started on my pace going through the mile 12 NYC Marathon water station. After three years, I still look forward to the club points races and the cheer squad still gives me that much needed boost.

Since joining NBR, Ive made my best effort to volunteer at every NBR water station that I am available for and join every cheer squad I can logistically get to. As runners, we know having that team support on the course can sometimes make a difference on the outcome. I don’t need to hope that new members continue this tradition of showing up because NBR has always had such capable leaders and attracted such wonderful and active members.

While my vocal range prevents me from employing the effective “WOOO!” (my ooo’s don’t get higher and sounds more sarcastic than heartfelt) and my cheering tools are limited to “go NBR,” clapping, cowbell, and other generic cheers, I am still happy to be out there cheering on the team.
