A unique opportunity to cross home plate at a real ballpark, the Take Your Base 5K Run/Walk starts on Surf Avenue and finishes in MCU Park, the shining jewel which is the home of the Brooklyn Cyclones. Last year more than a thousand participants raised $60,000 for charity; this year’s causes include the American Cancer Society, Autism Speaks, and Tell Every Lady, which promotes awareness of ovarian cancer. Runners are electronically timed. Everyone gets a T-shirt, ticket to a Cyclones game, and a barbecue-and-beer post-race party. See you on the Boardwalk!
