Run for Fun,
Fitness & Health

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


Bronx Community College will host the 42nd annual Run the Bronx, a community health event that includes 10K & 5K runs, a 2-mile fitness walk and a health pavilion.

Co-founded in 1978 by the late and distinguished BCC President and Tuskegee Airman Roscoe C. Brown Jr., Run the Bronx attracts over 1,500 participants annually.
