In 2015, Harlem Run and Harlem United organized the debut Harlem 1 Miler which was Harlem’s first and only one mile race. Each year since, participation has swelled and the race has become known as one of the city’s most fun competitive races.
Participants are invited to walk, jog, shuffle, skip, or race their way to the finish line and all fitness levels are welcome. In 2017, one participant set a Guinness World Record on our course while another used assistance from a walker to walk the course. We celebrate them — and everyone in between!
Harlem Gets Fit brings together New Yorkers of all backgrounds and fitness levels. Each Thursday, we gather for a workout tailored to you: from walkers to seasoned athletes, we’ll make sure you have a workout that’s right for you — and have a good time in the process.
Throughout the year, we collaborate to spread our love of fitness and to give back to the community.
