Building on our past years’ success, we are excited to announce the first annual Harlem Run Festival. Now you can run a marathon, a half marathon, or a marathon relay with your friends, with the last mile on the Harlem 1 Miler course. You’ve never seen anything like this before.

Like in year’s past, all levels of runners and walkers are invited to participate in the 6th Annual Harlem 1 Miler! We have simply expanded your participation options. This event brings the community together for a morning race/jog/walk/skip/shuffle in Harlem. No experience is required.
Heats will begin at 9:20 AM and will run every 20 minutes. Our location will be in East Harlem, on Randall’s Island. Enjoy the views of the bustling city, as we escape to our very own island oasis. Still one mile, and even more fun.
(notice: route is subject to slight changes w/o notice; finalized route to be revealed race week)
Date: Sunday, June 21, 2020 (Father’s Day)

There will be six heats of one mile each, split by age, run pace, and gender, with the final heat being a fun run the whole family can do together. Kids who are only running in the family heat are discounted so that the whole family can afford to run together.
Your start time will be determined by your expected one mile finish time. There will be NO registration on race morning.

THERE WILL BE NO RACE DAY PICK UP!
Teenagers can run in the timed race and qualify for a prize! To do so, register as a "Timed Teen Runner." If you're a teen who only wants to run in the family run, go ahead and register as a child. Kids under 6 can participate in the family race for free.
There is no one definition of family, so if you want to do this with one or more people, please do. This heat will not be timed, but you will still need a race number. And if you want to do the timed run and then join your family for the walk, you can use the same bib and you don't need to pay again.
This year, we are partnering with YOU to help make the Harlem One-Miler even more accessible. By sponsoring a runner (or two!), you'll enable us to invite kids from local schools to participate. Spread the joy of fitness and community with us.
