38th Annual Run the Bronx

  • Date Posted: May 23, 2016

38th Annual Run the Bronx, a community event that promotes the importance of health and fitness throughout the Bronx, New York and the surrounding communities.

Held annually on the first Saturday in May since 1977, Bronx Community College’s Run the Bronx is a community health event that promotes the importance of regular physical activity among children and adults. Bronx County is the least heathy county across New York State, consistently ranking 62 out of 62 counties. This finding underscores the need for adults and youth to incorporate regular exercise into their daily lives. For thirty-eight years, BCC’s Run the Bronx has served this purpose, providing an opportunity for participants to engage in a 10K/5K run or a 2-mile fitness walk in a fun, safe and supportive environment.
