Race Recap

They Ran and Walked in Harlem

The Percy Sutton Harlem 5K Run represents a culmination, not only for the annual celebration of Harlem Week, but for an eight-week program called Run for the Future. The program challenges rising high school senior girls from all five boroughs with little or no running experience to train for, and complete, a 5K race by summer's end. All 18 of this year's participants finished today's 5K and proved that anyone can "Run For Life," even when life is at a crossroads.

Practice Makes Perfect

As our high school runners gathered before the start of the Percy Sutton Harlem 5K Run, you couldn’t help but notice something was different. The usual pre-race jitters were nowhere to be seen. Instead, confidence filled the air.
