A&M/OCTONE RECORDS EVP/A&R BEN BERKMAN ran in the BROOKLYN Half-Marathon on SATURDAY, finishing with a new personal record of 1:57 -- three full minutes faster than he ran the NEW YORK CITY Half in MARCH. BERKMAN ran in support of "Team For Kids."
"The size was, in a word, huge!" said BERKMAN. "I read that the amount of entrants nearly tripled this year, ballooning from 6,000 runners last year to over 16,000 this year. This makes the BROOKLYN Half the biggest half marathon in the country by far."
