North Brooklyn Runners: A Community Running Group Serving Williamsburg, Greenpoint, Bushwick, and Beyond!

NYC Marathon Team Spots

Thanks to our continued team volunteering efforts (NYC Marathon, NYC Half, and Brooklyn Half Fluid Stations), we are usually awarded several of those fabled team spots each year for the NYC Marathon.

To receive one of these spots:

You must prove yourself to be an active member of NBR: group runs, meetings, other events.  You must contribute to NBR: volunteer at events, be a run leader or help the group in other ways. 

When marathon season rolls around (usually in August), the application will be available.  Let us know if you entered this year’s lottery or not, and if you’ve run the NYC Marathon before.  Express yourself creatively as to why you want to do the NYC Marathon this year (in writing, video, music, photography, food, etc.) and include a short description.

Oh yeah, each awardee will then be interviewed to check-in on how training is progressing.


Congratulations to NBR’s 2016 NYC Marathon Team Spot awardees!

After careful consideration of what was an incredibly deep and well-deserving pool of candidates, the committee has decided the recipients of the five team spots for the 2016 NYC Marathon. Their dedication to the North Brooklyn Runners and Brooklyn community as a whole is unmatched and we are honored to have the following five represent us this coming November. Please congratulate
