In late August of 1776, British soldiers landed on Long Island and made their way into Brooklyn, where they attacked U.S. defenses, setting off the Battle Of Brooklyn, the largest battle of the Revolutionary War.  While General George Washington and the US Army were soundly defeated by the British in that battle, the United States did, of course, ultimately triumph and win the War.

On August 22, 2010 at 8am,  join us in making history by running the inaugural JackRabbit Sports Battle of Brooklyn 10 Miler in Prospect Park!  Participants will have the option of racing the entire 10 miles individually or as part of a 3-person relay team.  The race course will be three loops of Prospect Park, taking you past several of the sites where the original Battle of Brooklyn was fought.  The race will be chip-timed and prizes will be awarded to the top individuals and relay teams.

BFF wants to get 3 teams of three entered into this race .  If you are interested in racing with the team contact me at bkfitfactory@gmail.com You must be a BFF member to run with our team.  I will register the teams personally.
