If you’re interested in supporting the new Brooklyn Greenway, the Brooklyn Greenway Initiative is hosting a half marathon on October 20. The route will follow the completed and future portions of the waterfront Greenway, which snakes through south Williamsburg, around the Navy Yard, and through Brooklyn Bridge Park. The 14-mile run will start and finish in Williamsburg’s East River State Park, and you can check out the route here. BGI members can register for $25, and the general public pays $35. The event will take place rain or shine. But if it’s cancelled because of severe weather, the race won’t be rescheduled and the entry fees will be considered charitable donations to the Brooklyn Greenway. You can find all the info on BGI’s website and on the event’s Facebook page.
