Midsummer 5K Run and Nordic Pole Walkathon:
June 19 in Prospect Park, Brooklyn
 

The Midsummer 5K was hosted by the Finland Center Foundation in support of the Kota Alliance and its member organizations. It was a huge success! We got lucky with great weather, a really sunny day at Prospect Park. For more on the event, including time results for the runners, click through to the Finland Center's blog.
Here is video from race day, as well as some pictures of the runners and volunteers:
