The Red Hook Criterium is a world renowned nighttime bicycle race that is contested over 26 laps of a short, technical circuit. This event, traditionally held in Red Hook, Brooklyn and Milano, Italy, moves into the Brooklyn Navy Yard for the first time as part of the four race Red Hook Criterium Championship Series. This spectator friendly race will feature athletes from around the world fighting for championship points and a chance at entering the history books as the first winner of The Red Hook Crit Brooklyn Navy Yard.

In addition to the criterium there will be a 5k running race held on the same evening, on the same course, and in the same spirit. The combination of the nighttime setting, first lap prime, and a flat technical course will create an unique atmosphere for both runners and spectators.
