The Hunts Point Hustle 5K race is a great way to experience the coming South Bronx Greenway.
People of all abilities come from all over the city to travel parts of the future route. After a highly successful first run on Father's Day in 2007, Sustainable South Bronx is expanding the reach of this groundbreaking event for the South Bronx.
The route begins and ends at Hunts Point Riverside Park.

The South Bronx Greenway Project (SBG) is a community led plan for a bicycle/pedestrian greenway along the South Bronx waterfront, which will provide much needed open space, waterfront access and opportunities for mixed used economic development. The project employs locals so helps create jobs while creating a healthier environment.
