Congratulations to everyone who ran the Superfund Super Run last night! What's the Superfund Super Run, you ask? A race organized by the South Brooklyn Running Club (SBRC) to benefit the Gowanus Park Conservancy, a grassroots nonprofit group devoted to cleaning up and developing the Gowanus Canal, Brooklyn's own Superfund monster. Runners enjoyed the epitome of a chill race--there was a start line, a checkpoint, and a finish line (literally inside the Pig Beach Bar), but the route you took from Greenpoint to Gowanus was entirely up to you. All you had to do was let the smells of ribs and burgers emanating from Pig Beach carry you down to the canal at Union Street. Props to SBRC, and congrats again for everyone who participated!
Last night represented yet another example of the running community coming together to improve its broader environment. We were proud to be one of the sponsors of the event for winners' gear as well as serving as the printer for the official race tees. We look forward to being a part of this night time race experience for years to come.
