Run the Bronx Recap

Bronx Community College (BCC) hosted the 46th Annual Roscoe C. Brown Jr. 10K • 5K Runs and 2-Mile Walk, otherwise known as “Run the Bronx,” on May 4 with nearly 2,000 participants convening from around the Bronx Borough, the State of NY and countries such as Poland, France, England and the Dominican Republic.

Co-founded in 1978 by the late and distinguished Bronx Community College (BCC) President and Tuskegee Airman Roscoe C. Brown Jr., Run the Bronx is the 2nd oldest footrace in NYC. The run celebrates fitness and wellness in the borough and works towards the goal of improving the health of children and their families in the Bronx, while showcasing the beauty of the University Heights campus.

Run the Bronx race routes start and end on BCC’s campus and go through surrounding neighborhoods, including the legendary Grand Concourse.  About half of this year’s participants were K-12 students from the Bronx. A new feature this year was the PeeWee Pavilion, which included child-friendly obstacle courses, hula hoops, bubbles, giveaways and more.

We would like to give special thanks to our sponsors and volunteers:

Bronx Community College cannot host an event like Run the Bronx without the support from great sponsors and volunteers.

Over the years, we have had numerous organizations that have come back year after year to provide a team, take part in the Run Pavilion, and give health as well as financial assistance.
