TO ALL MERCHANTS OF NORTH FLATBUSH AVENUE AND PROSPECT HEIGHTS!!
Spring has officially arrived – and as the warm weather crowds return and your calendars continue to fill up with great events, we are delighted to bring your attention to the annual Brooklyn Half Marathon held on May 19, 2012.
For the past three years, merchants, restaurants and attractions around Park Slope and Prospect Heights have celebrated Brooklyn’s own premier running event by providing discounts to runners and their family and friends throughout the Brooklyn Half weekend. This year, the event is bigger and better than ever: over 18,000 runners signed up for the race in record time (under 10 hours), and crowds upwards of 30,000 are expected to come out and cheer. This year’s race will have a new course: runners will start near the Brooklyn Museum, make their way through Prospect Park and will finish near the iconic Coney Island boardwalk.
In preparation of this opportunity, we cordially invite you to a special event to plan for this amazing race and coordinate the best ways for your business to take advantage of the opportunity for exposure.
Please join us for a special luncheon at Burrito Bar, 307 Flatbush Avenue on Wednesday, April 18 at 12:30 pm to discuss ways you can be a part of the celebration, such as providing discounts to runners and spectators or opening early on the day of the race. We hope you are able to attend, and look forward to working with all of you to make this an incredible event for all involved.
Please let Brian Dershowitz (firstname.lastname@example.org) know if you are able to attend by Friday, April 13th. If you are unable to attend but wish to be involved, please contact us.
Thank you ahead of time for your support.
Brooklyn Borough President
