This weekend, local run organizer Runstreet is offering pet lovers the chance to complete a 5K with their four-legged friends.

The run, which will kick off at 10 a.m. on Saturday April 6, will begin at Brooklyn Running Co., located at 222 Grand St., and go through the streets of Williamsburg at an easy 10-minute mile pace. Runners both with and without dogs are invited to participate.

The non-competitive run will feature stops at local street art along the route, where professional photographers will be able to capture a few shots of runners and their pets.

The dog-centric run will also help to benefit other animals in need. Half of all proceeds from the run will be donated to Second Chance Rescue, a New York City-based nonprofit dedicated to reducing overpopulation in shelters.

The cost to register for the run is $30. Kids under 12 and dogs run for free, and students and military members will receive a 25 percent discount. First-time Runstreet runners will also get $5 off their ticket.

Participants can register at the Runstreet website.

Runstreet is at it again. Another awesome art run in Williamsburg Brooklyn. You will definitely see my girl Harley and I there.


A 5K run for dogs ? This is what our taxes are wasted on ? Let alone inconveniencing everyone with closed streets in order to have this run. Why don’t they have “curb your dog” classes for pet owners, at least that would be something helpful to the community.


>This is what our taxes are wasted on?

Well, no, because a private company is running this. Taxes are distributed by the government. If you’d like to know more, graduate the 4th grade.


I know enough to have lived here my whole life. Are you having fun paying your rent to all those Hasidic’s under their LLC names or management companies? Wait till all these tax abatements roll off, you will all be crying on social media and moving back to the hillbilly land you came from. Ha !

No streets are closed and what does your taxes have to do with this? You clearly cant understand what you read.
