Don't worry about missing out on any speedwork because of the darkness caused by the earlier sunsets. East River Park Track Club offers Saturday morning track workouts at the East River Park track at 9:00am. These weekly track sessions feature less total volume than the Wednesday evening track workouts, and focus on runners keeping a fast turnover and good running form. A typical session will consist of stride work, intervals, and drills. Every weekly session will feature a different workout for runners to get the maximum benefit.

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.

RRCA announces #RunSafe Public Awareness, Safety Campaign


To help educate and remind all runners to run safe, the RRCA is embarking on a yearlong, public-safety, awareness campaign starting with the launch of the Run Smart : Run Safe animated video developed by Space Chimp Media. This message is designed to remind both new and regular runners to be aware of their surroundings at all times and to never trust drivers on the road.

The RRCA’s goal is to get as many runners as possible, including youth, to view the message, enhance their personal safety efforts on the run, and to share the message with fellow runners. Clubs, training programs, and events are encouraged to embed this message in their websites, share it in newsletters, share with local media outlets, and more.  Be sure to pass it on!
