Run Brooklyn Program

The Run Brooklyn program was put in place to encourage team racing and support of Brooklyn races organized by local groups and organizations. PPTC members who participate in 6 scored Brooklyn races in a calendar year can enter into a raffle for a $100 cash prize, and 5 winners will be selected at random at the next annual Awards night to be held early the following year.

Rules for qualification:

To be eligible, you must have become a PPTC member before July 1 and race only for PPTC in the calendar year.

  • Any Brooklyn based races that are officially scored will qualify.
  • Only 1 NYRR race in Brooklyn will be counted even if you run several.
  • The 6 races must include at least 1 race organized by PPTC (Turkey Trot, Cherry Tree, Harry’s Handicap, Al Goldstein).
  • Only 1 race in a speed series (ie. Al Goldstein Summer Speed Series, Fort Hamilton Speed Series, etc.) will be counted, no matter how many you run.

Sample Brooklyn races (not an exhaustive list):

  • PPTC Cherry Tree 10 Miler and Relay
  • Brooklyn Marathon
  • Battle of Brooklyn
