Bronx Community College will be hosting its 45th annual Run the Bronx, a community health event that includes 10K & 5K runs as well as a 2-mile fitness walk on Saturday, May 6th 2023. Co-founded in 1978 by the late and distinguished BCC President and Tuskegee Airman Roscoe C. Brown Jr., Run the Bronx attracts over 2,000 participants annually.
Run the Bronx, a signature BCC event, was developed to promote health and fitness in the Bronx which:
- Ranked last (62nd out of 62) in New York State counties for poor health
- Has residents with an estimated 85% higher risk of obesity than Manhattan residents
- Has a 10% diabetes rate
Those interested in participating should sign up by Saturday, April 29, 2023 to receive their materials before race day. To learn more and to register, visit here. A portion of proceeds goes to benefit Bronx Community College scholarships.
