With so many exciting things going on in the past few weeks and summer just around the corner, we know that it's hard to keep up! But we wanted to keep you up to date on our favorite event of the year: the Harlem One Miler, presented by Harlem Run and Harlem United. Our big day is just a short two weeks away and we're so excited to see you all out there running, walking, run-walking, skipping, shuffling... or however you want to do that mile!
As the weeks go on, we will keep you posted on more specifics, but here's what you should know so far:
Pre-Race Packet Pickup: Come to Chaiwali in Harlem from 5-8pm on Friday, June 17 OR Jackrabbit/NY Running Company (Time Warner Center, 2nd Floor) from 3-6pm on Saturday, June 18. Why should you be doing pre-race pickup? Well, you'll get your bib for starters. Secondly, we always love a good HR meetup. And last but not least, everyone that picks their packet up early will get a gift! Can't pass that up.
Race Day: The big day is on Sunday, June 19th at 9:30am. Mark your calendar, set a google alert, put a red tie on your finger; whatever you need to do! Just save that date! The race is in Marcus Garvey Park from 120th-124th Street, so just head on over to the park. There, you'll meet up with your HR fam, take some selfies, turn on Map My Run, and then head off to rock your mile!
During the race, we will have a Men's Heat, Women's Heat, and Family Heat. Want some visualization?
Oh, and some last minute reminders...
Children are welcome. #YoungLegendz
High-fives are much appreciated.
Race Rule #1: If you can't run, you must cheer.
The more the merrier! So bring your girlfriends...
Bring your bros...
...And get ready to rock that medal! Let's make Sunday, June 19th, 2016- the 2nd Annual Harlem One Miler - a day to remember for years to come!
See you out there.
