We Got Next

2015 was an incredible year.  For me, looking at pictures of where we were last year at this time as compared to now never gets old.

But with 2016 right around the corner, it’s time for us to look to the future and talk about what’s next.  There will be a lot of surprises but 3 key things to look out for this year:

1.     DOPE GEAR

Everyone knows we are #TeamUA – now it’s time to get the gear to make it official.  If you’ve been waiting for a Harlem Run hoodie, t-shirt, racing tank – have a little bit more patience; it’s right around the corner


One of our biggest goals for 2016 is to offer more opportunities for the kids in our community to get fit along with us.


Working with Harlem Haberdashery on the toy drive for Harlem Hospital was a very rewarding part of this holiday season.  Stay tuned for future collaborations with Harlem Haberdashery and more opportunities to give back in our community.

And, of course, some really dynamic urban running events are headed your way.  We will be bringing back the #HarlemOneMiler and the #HarlemWorldTakeOver along with a few other tricks up our sleeves.  We are excited to be making fitness fun and accessible for people of all ages and abilities and hope that 2016 continues that momentum. 

We love collaborating with different crews – too many to list—but we are excited to see what they have to offer as well and continue to support and bring out the best in all of us.

If you’re in town on NYE, please join us at 10am for a fun run at Central Park – full details below:

Arrive at 10am. Bring your resolutions with you, sparkles, those weird 2016 glasses, noise makers, etc.

5k- ish (http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=6757073)
10k option (one full loop of the park)

Feel free to run, walk, crawl, skip, etc. All ages and paces welcomed. 

There will be a raffle at the end of the run for your chance to win UA gear! A few ways to enter
1. Follow us on Twitter @harlem_run
2. Join our mailing list on HarlemRun.com
3. Use the hashtag #HarlemRunNYE and share your fitness resolution on instagram and/or twitter. 

Two lucky winners will be chosen at random.

The holidays are a difficult time for me but always an important moment for reflection.  Thank you for being a part of my life.
