NBR Racing 2016

We continue to race all of the NYRR club points races, and again have a new list of local races that you can run in order to earn the Silver Moth and Red Squirrel patches. We encourage all NBR racers to consider these races when it comes time to test yourself.

NYRR Club points Championship series.

We have our biggest turn outs at the NYRR Club Points races. New York Road Runners designates 11 races each year as “Club Points” races. In these, the finish times of the top 3 male and female runners for each team are added up and we are awarded points (Top 10 count for the Club Championship 5 Miler). Also for masters and above categories.

As always, you get the best deals by signing up early. Once you have registered, add your name to each specific race in the Race Sign-in Spreadsheet.

2016 Club Points Race Participation Award Patches

We really want you to run club points races (either NYRR Club Points or the twelve races listed above). You don’t need to score (Kudos if you do.), just run proudly in your NBR singlet, finish strong, and represent. If you run all or most of them you will receive a Award Patch at next year’s Annual Gala.

The Silver Moth Patch for 12 races.

The Flying Squirrel Patch for 13 races.

More details on these and other Patches on the Patch Awards Page.

We are USATF Registered!

NBR has a renewed registration with USATF for 2016! We can register (as individuals or teams) for USATF sanctioned events as members of North Brooklyn Runners.  See the calendar for upcoming local events.

There are many opportunities to participate in short distance races & track events sanctioned by USATF, along with the longer distances. You are generally NOT required to have an individual membership to USATF in order to register for their events, but if you plan on winning any of their races this year and would like to be awarded prize money (where applicable,) you will need to purchase a membership. Happy racing!

-Race Coordinators

With NBR’s 500+ official and unofficial members, chances are if there’s a race then you’ll find a runner wearing an NBR singlet! There is no limit to the variety of racers we have, some runners train for months for one race, others race twice in one day! Some like to sprint around a 200 meter indoor banked track while others can be found running 100 mile races in the hills of North Carolina. From Central Park to Germany, Long Island to Ireland, Roosevelt Island to Tokyo, we race everywhere.

Check out the the Race Sign-In Sheet to see what others are running as more options for you to join along. Also, add your races and name to the list so others know you are racing and will possibly join you.
