ReelSolidTV Episode 25

The Harlem Renaissance 5-Mile Classic Road Race was founded by: Dr. Roscoe C. Brown Jr., Tuskegee Airman and past President of Bronx Community College; Preston King Jr., CPA, and marathon runner; and Abdul El Amin, runner of two Ultra Marathons and trainer. They convened a committee of runners, coaches, educators, civic & business leaders to create a racing and cultural event for the enrichment of the Harlem community.



The 1990’s brought another, major cultural and economic revitalization spurred by the formation of the Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone, New York City housing Development programs and investment by visionary entrepreneurs. Today, The Harlem Renaissance 5-Mile Classic is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization with a mission to generate college scholarship funds for Harlem youth by celebrating the aspirations of the Renaissance of the past and the joy of revival currently spreading throughout this world-famous community. The race event brings light to the contributions made by Harlem residents in the fields of art, civics, history, literature and the sciences. The hope is to provide participants and spectators alike with a glimpse of Harlem's energy, diverse architectural structures, great cultural institutions, historic sites, and world renowned churches.

Raising Scholarship Funds for youth of the Harlem Community is the stated Mission of HR5MCO. For this reason, this race event has earned the support of national corporations, as well as local businesses, elected officials and other non-profit organizations.

Your participation as an individual or team entrant is welcomed. Your presence will help create new educational opportunities for the youth of the Harlem community.
