July 18th Run to Chinatown Ice Cream Factory

It’s July. It’s hot. Put on your running shoes, we’re going for ice cream. If you’ve been outside at all in the last 3 weeks you know it’s insanely spicy outside, so we’re routing this month’s destination run to none other than the venerable Chinatown Ice Cream Factory. Founded in 1978, they’re a cultural institution and a beacon of delicious joy during these hot summer nights. We’ll be teaming up with Prospect Park Track Club, Crown Heights Running Club, North Brooklyn Runners and our friends BK Running Co for this one, so get ready for a tasty good time.

8K MEETUP: 5:30PM Brooklyn Art Museum (200 Eastern Pkwy, Brooklyn, NY)
5k MEETUP: @ 6:20 at BK Running Co. (480 Bergen St.)
RSVP HERE! (not mandatory but GREATLY appreciated to help us track turnout)

NYRR Running Routes with Chinatown Runners

In an effort to continue to explore each borough’s rich cultural stories, our friends over at New York Road Runners joined us for a recap of our inaugural route highlighting Brooklyn’s very own Chinatown in Sunset Park. Check out what hidden gems and historical landmarks we shared with them along the route, and relive the magic by running it yourself—you never know what delicious treasure you might stumble upon!

NYRR Spotlight on Chinatown Runners

{chinatown}runners is honored to announce that July’s fundraising efforts will go 100% to Stop AAPI Hate — an organization committed to the documentation and reporting of AAPI hate crimes in America, as well as building outreach and support programs for community members who have been affected. Despite the drop in major television networks reporting about AAPI hate crimes, they are still rampant and we must remain diligent in our efforts to combat them.
