BROOKLYN, New York- On April 21st the inaugural Brooklyn 15 Kilometer Run (The "B15") officially replaces the Brooklyn Bun. The B15 will bring a 3-loop course around beautiful, world- renowned Prospect Park with a finish at Bartel-Pritchard Square, the intersection of Prospect Park West and Prospect Park Southwest. The B15 will offer an additional 5k run for the shorter sprint participants and a 2k run for youth participants under 14 years old. Splits will be offered for each loop of Prospect Park to measure performance for each racer. Registration is set to open on December 11th.

“The running community asked for a spring event with a unique distance and a prime location. The B15 is exactly that,” said Jack Caress, President and CEO of Pacific Sports LLC. “The Brooklyn Bun was very successful and showed tremendous growth in participation within the first two years. We expect to surpass those participation levels with the launch of the B15.”

Champion System has signed on as presenting sponsor for the Brooklyn 15K. “We’re excited to be a sponsor of the 2013 Brooklyn 15K,” stated Scott Kaylin, co-founder of Champion System, makers of premium custom technical apparel. “Supporting events like the Brooklyn 15K is a key part of our philosophy of promoting an active, healthy lifestyle while at the same time showcasing the high-tech garments we offer that make sporting events even more enjoyable.” For more information on Champion System custom technical apparel visit our virtual showroom at www.champ-sys.com.
