About This Activity

Calling all levels of runners and walkers for the 3rd Annual Harlem One-Miler!  This event brings the community together for a morning race/jog/walk/skip/shuffle around the park.  No experience is required.

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.

Run with a crew?

This year, we have a SPECIAL friendly, competition going for the run club/crew with the most participants. Prizes include $200, a trophy, bragging rights, and some more goodies; sign up with your club/crew today!

What about kids?

Teenagers can run in the timed race and qualify for a prize! To do so, register as a "Teen Runner." If you're a teen who only wants to run in the family run, go ahead and register in the family 1- mile. Kids under 6 can participate in the family heat for free. 

To Race As A Family

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.  Just email Rachel Cutler at rcutler@harlemunited.org if you have any questions.

Sponsor a runner!

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 and homeless, low-income, or at-risk Harlem United clients to participate. Spread the joy of fitness and community with us.  If you don't plan to run, but want to make a donation to sponsor a runner, please visit www.harlemunited.org/donate and then send us an email at info@harlem1miler.com to tell us how many runners you are sponsoring.  Otherwise, add on your donation in your race registration. Thank you!!!
