$30 until June 24th,
$40 until packet pickup begins,
$50 thereafter.

Feel free to join us after the race if you just wanna hang out at Coney Island for the day :-)

More details to come.


Last year’s Take Your Base event raised over $60,000. for charity while attracting nearly 1,000 participants. This year’s race will embrace new causes, while improving the event in nearly every way. If you spend one day at Coney Island this summer – this should be it!

The electronically timed 5K race, accurately measured course, and finish at home plate are just the beginning. A great post-race party (BBQ and Beer in addition to the typically great NYCRUNS spread), ticket to a Cyclones game, and a fun day at Coney Island are all part of the package. All runners and walkers are welcome (if you select walker you will not be timed).

Course Information: The course is still being determined but the start will be on Surf Avenue in front of MCU Park and the finish will be at home plate. A shorter course option will be offered for walkers.

Transportation: Take the D train, F train, N train, or Q train to the Coney Island/Stillwell Avenue. At the corner of Stillwell and Surf Avenues (where Nathan’s is located), turn right. Walk two blocks west along Surf Avenue to the ballpark.

Awards: The top three overall men and women will receive an award after the race. The top 3 finishers in each age group will receive awards as well.

Packet Pickup: TBD.

Cost: This event is $25 until the end of March. $30 until June 24th. $40 until packet pickup begins and $50 thereafter. The standard no-refunds, no-deferrals, no-transfers policy applies, unless you are signed up for the NYCRUNS membership program.

Fundraising: Please do! When you register, you have a choice to fund raise and a choice of participating organizations. If you select this option, you will automatically be setup with a Crowdrise account or this event will be added to your existing account.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
