2015 Brooklyn Marathon will be the RRCA Eastern Regional Championship Race

Brooklyn running has been getting hot over the past five years with the popularity of NYRR's Brooklyn Half-Marathon and NYCRuns' Brooklyn Marathon. So it only seems natural for a championship race to find its way to the NYC borough. That being said, the Road Runners Club of America has selected the NYCRuns Brooklyn Marathon to be the 2015 RRCA Eastern Regional Championship Race.

Since its inception, the Broklyn Marathon has been a sold out event with the demand that would let it grow into a much larger event. In 2014, NYCRuns had added prize money to the Brooklyn Marathon to attract higher caliber runners. The details for the 2015 Brooklyn Marathon have not been released yet. But it has been a goal for NYCRuns to take the Brooklyn Marathon out of Prospect Park and onto the streets of Brooklyn. Watch for announcements from NYCRuns about the 2015 Brooklyn Marathon following the next running of the marathon on Sunday, November 16.
