Brooklyn Marathon 2011?

NYCRuns, which runs a hefty race calendar site, is helping to promote a nascent Brooklyn Marathon idea in 2011.

According to the Brooklyn Marathon Facebook page, the goal is to "run a Brooklyn Marathon through the streets of Brooklyn in 2011"

There's also a Brooklyn Marathon 2011 Web page, with the note: (don't)fuhgeddaboudit.

It's an interesting idea, though given all the red tape the NYRR has to go through (and that's with their clout) ... well, heck, anything is possible. Thoughts from the readership?

I should note: There is no race yet, no application etc., so don't read this blog entry and set Brooklyn Marathon as your goal race for 2011. (Then again, you could run the Brooklyn Half to Coney Island, then turn around and run back ...)

NYCRuns, for those who don't know, is also promoting the Peter Rabbit X/C run in Prospect Park on 12/11, and the Brooklyn New Year's Eve Fun Run (which is still going forward despite the demise of Slope Sports this year)
