Bed Stuy 10K Oct. 10

For those of you looking for a local 10K (and are completely sick of doing loops in Prospect and Central parks), check out the annual Bed Stuy 10K. Not only will it take you through neighborhoods that for many of us isn't on the regular running route, it's also got great community support.

The timing of it is pretty cool - 4 weeks before New York, and it gives you a chance for a shorter race to work out some kinks (rather than traveling to Staten Island, which is hosting the half that weekend).

The 2009 course map is linked off the home page, and it's worth studying ... I know a fair number of people that got lost taking a wrong turn (I almost did the same during an earlier iteration of the race, and was only saved by helpful passersby). No guarantees it's the same this year, though.
