Revolutionary running. Did you know the largest battle of the Revolutionary War was fought in Brooklyn? Either way, you can commemorate it by running in JackRabbit’s Battle of Brooklyn 10-miler in Prospect Park on August 21. If you register by today, it’s just $20.

Lulu loves Barry’s. Barry’s Bootcamp is Lululemon’s July “Studio of the Month,” which means they’ll be hosting a free class every Thursday at 4:00 p.m. Classes are first come, first serve, but Well+Good readers get an exclusive chance to reserve a spot by emailing [email protected]. *First-time bootcampers only.

The Yanks go Vegan. Grubstreet reported that, starting this weekend, Babycake’s gluten-free, vegan frozen chocolate-chip-cookie sandwiches and brownie-cream sandwiches will be on the menu of Yankee Stadium’s Legends Suite. We see faux-meat hot dogs in their not-so-distant future.

More free yoga (for people who work late). Free classes are popping up all over town. This week, Laughing Lotus added two weekly donation-based community classes to their schedule: 8:15 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday nights. Perfect for those of you stuck at work until after 6:00!

Beach-y boot camp. Flywheel-fave instructor Holly Rilinger is bringing her popular Training Camp (page 8 of our Summer Guide) to the Mayan Riviera this fall for four days. Summer extension, anyone?
