We’re at Queensbridge Park on Friday for OutdoorFest!

Don’t show up to the Williamsburg Bridge this Friday. We know that by now the instinct to wake up at an outrageously early hour to run hill repeats on the Lower East Side is strong.

Don’t worry, you’ll still be waking up at an outrageously early hour. But this time we’ll be sweating in a place that has amazing views of Manhattan and plenty of space for running around – Queensbridge Park!

We had a one-off workout here two years ago!


OutdoorFest is a 10 day outdoor festival celebrating the great outdoors – right here in NYC! We’ve been partnering with our friends at OutdoorFest every year since 2015. This time around, they’re doing a sunrise launch event Friday morning at Brooklyn Boulders (BKB) Queensbridge. So we’ve moved our workout to Queens to get in on the action!

So here’s the plan:

  1. Work out with us at Queensbridge Park (enter on 41st st, follow the path to the field) from 6:30 – 7 AM
  2. Head to BKB for some FREE refreshments
  3. (Optional) Climb at BKB! If your work is portable, there will also be co-working space for those who are interested.

You can visit this link to RSVP. Steps 1 and 2 of our plan are 100% FREE. Step 3 is not, and requires a General Admission ticket.

Important: Brooklyn Boulders requires everyone to sign a waiver – even non-climbers. So save yourself the wait and fill out this form in advance!

You won’t want to miss this event. If we’re going to leave our precious Willy B, we’re going to make the workout totally worth your while. See you there!
