The Race

The Hunts Point Hustle 5K started at 10 am at Hunts Point Riverside Park and ended at Barretto Point Park, where 264 runners crossed the finish line. After the race, participants, family, friends and members of the community gathered for a beautiful, sun-filled day of food, fitness and fun. Guest of Honor State Assemblyman Marcos Crespo announced the race and raffle winners. People joined in for a free Zumba class led by Xavier Marzan, yoga by Amy Moran of South Bronx Yoga and a mini boot camp by Blink Fitness. Kids painted pumpkins, made butterflies with Bronx Children’s Museum and played outdoor games provided by NYC Parks. The solar-powered band Solar Punch did music demos. The day closed with Bobby Sanabria and his Quarteto Ache playing, with the sun sinking into the Bronx River behind the stage.
