The BKLYN MILE is a non-profit, point-to-point road race that runs along Kent Avenue and through the heart of Williamsburg. All monies earned from the BKLYN MILE will benefit Girls on the Run NYC. With a motto of "learn. dream. live. run.", Girls on the Run seeks to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. 

In addition to the in-person events on race day, there is a virtual race opportunity for those not able to visit Brooklyn.  This event will be run from Friday, August 6 through Sunday, August 8.  Participants can register for the Virtual BKLYN MILE here.

The mile is an iconic distance; unique in its ability to stoke the fire of the most competitive runner, but also unique in its ability to generate wide appeal to people of all running experience levels, including beginners.

The course is USATF-certified, lightning fast and, well, awesome. The Start is south of the Williamsburg Bridge in North Brooklyn. It proceeds north underneath the beautiful span and then along Kent Avenue toward the finish at East River State Park.
