Event Details

The inaugural OSR Bread Route Race (OSRBRR) on October 18th, 2018 was loosely based on my father's bread route from the family business back in the day. 

I am excited to announce the next race will be another in the OSR "Bread Route Race" series. At its peak, DiNoto's Bakery had 14 trucks delivering throughout NYC, this next race will be based on an old family friend's daily grind, a driver named 'Butchie'.

Butch not only had his own route, but to make extra scratch, he would act as an alternate driver and cover for guys that called in or didn't show up..often times doubling up on hi$ day. Over the years, with that work ethic, Butchie became a good friend to my father, grandfather and great-grandfather. 

Late one night, when my dad was 18, he got called in to cover a route. My dad had no clue what the route was, having never done it. After the first stop, my dad was stopped at a light trying to figure out his next turn when...he looks over to his right, and standing on the street corner is Butch. 

Since Butch knew all the routes like the back of his hand, my great-grandfather sent him to "find (his) grandson" and help him get through. My dad said that when he turned and saw Butchie waiting there smiling, he "looked like an angel". Needless to say they got through the day and delivered that fucking bread.

OSR will provide a mobile bag check. There is no race venue before or after this event, we will meet in the street. The overall winner will receive a small cash prize, 2nd and 3rd place will be reimbursed the cost of their entry fee.

The unmarked course will take athletes through the city streets, sidewalks, parks and landmarks in the middle of the night. This is not for the faint-hearted, it is intended for the most experienced runners only. OSR reserves the right to deny anyone entry.

This race will provide it's participants with a one-of-a-kind OSR/NYC racing experience.
