Nike Bridge Runners Celebrate 125 Years of the Brooklyn Bridge

The Nike NYC Bridge Runners held a run last night to commemorate the 125th birthday of the Brooklyn Bridge. About 100 runners showed up for the 4.8 mile route that went from Columbus Park in Chinatown over the bridge and finished at Cadman Plaza in Brooklyn. Running through heavy rain at times, it was a bridge run for only the most dedicated and included Mike Saes of the Bridge Runners, Craig Wetherby of Frank151 and photographer David Perez Shadi. Following the run was a bridge history lesson provided by the NYC Parks Department as well as Grimaldi’s pizza and a birthday cake. Nike also provided custom dry fit jerseys and commemorative patches. All photos by David Perez Shadi
