Cheer on this year's runners in the NYC Senior Games Torch Relay.  We're kicking off the Senior Games with a 24-mile Torch Relay through Brooklyn!

The relay kicks off in Williamsburg, heads to South Brooklyn, then ends in Brownsville. Participants will run from one NYC Parks recreation center to the next, then hand off the torch to a new group of runners. 

There will be cheer stations at each relay point.
