The Warrior Race Overview and Starting Line

On 3 June, South Brooklyn Running Club is hosting the second Warriors Relay Race from the Highland Park Orange BBQ Area to the Coney Island Brewery. The Warrior Relay is an alley cat road race inspired by Walter Hill’s 1979 film, The Warriors. You’ll trace the route that the Warriors took as they escaped the Bronx after being framed for killing Cyrus.
