Annual 10K Community Run & Walk

Get the flash player here:

The race is one of the premier 10K’s held in all New York City. Given its proximity to the NYC Marathon, many athletes see Restoration’s 10K as a “warm up” to their long-distance run in November. One of the oldest Brooklyn run routes in New York. However, people of all fitness levels and ages are attracted to the race which has become a much anticipated community event. Restoration 31st 10K RUN will be on October 7, 2012.

For the past 31 years, Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation has sponsored the 10K Run and Fun Walk bringing out runners and walkers from the tri-state region. Not only are participants impressed by Bed-stuy’s community character – culture, brownstones and rich history, they also enjoy the camaraderie and the energy this neighborhood run distinctly offers. Also the scenic route provides an excellent health and fitness opportunity for all, whether you are training for a marathon or simply looking to maintain a healthy lifestyle. This is an event for the whole family! For all those looking to get fit and have fun, we also have a bike ride, a kiddie run and 5K walk. From July through October, join Healthy Families on the Move at Restoration Plaza (near Applebee’s) Wednesday evenings.

All activities start at:
Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Plaza
1368 Fulton Street, Brooklyn, NY 11216
