Kiwi Energy sponsors BGI and South Brooklyn Running Club’s Brooklyn Greenway Half Marathon and 5K for the second year
On Sunday, October 18 2015, Brooklyn Greenway Initiative (BGI), in partnership with South Brooklyn Running Club, hosted the Brooklyn Greenway Half – the only half marathon and 5K exclusively on the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway, located on the historic East River waterfront in Brooklyn. The third annual event sold out with a record 1300 runners.
Kiwi Energy was a sponsor and participant in the event for the second consecutive year. Starting and finishing in Williamsburg, this intimate run highlighted BGI’s progress in achieving a fully completed greenway along the Brooklyn waterfront, as well as showcasing city and state parks.
For a decade, the Brooklyn Greenway Initiative (BGI) has acted as the catalyst for the establishment, development and long-term stewardship of the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway.
By running the Brooklyn Greenway Half, participants are supporting the development, establishment and long term stewardship of the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway. When complete, this 14-mile landscaped route for pedestrians, runners and cyclists will connect neighborhood parks and open spaces from Greenpoint to Bay Ridge. Kiwi Energy recognizes the importance both environmentally and for the community to support this ongoing event and environmental development project.
