Heading to Boston and Not Running the Marathon?

Sign up tomorrow for the BAA 5K, held Sunday of Marathon weekend.

Entries are limited to 5,000 - I suspect that you won't see a lot of local entries, but a ton of national entries as "running tourists" (I'm one this year) converge.

It won't close out as fast as the marathon, but will probably get filled quickly. Entries start at 10 a.m. The course is relatively flat (there's one short, steep hill).

Hi Brooklyn Running!

There are a lot of Ditmas Parker's running in the NYC Half Marathon for Camp Interactive. Would you be able to advertise for our local fundraising event at Sycamore Flower Shop & Bar. Ditmas Park Blog as info on it: http://ditmasparkblog.com/

You can race on Patriots Day too. There is a 5 miler in Lexington that starts and finishes at the Battle Green.
