We Run Mt. Vernon is a proactive health and fitness Run/Walk/ MOVEment club in the greater Mount Vernon community.
We Run Mt. Vernon is all about getting our community healthier by encouraging movement as part of a daily routine. We are dedicated to fitness for every BODY at every AGE. Our members include a broad range of fitness enthusiasts: from NY Marathon Runners to newbies. WRMV started with a weekly walking group in 2018 and has been faithfully meeting weekly at the Gazebo in Hartley Park ever since. We now walk and/or run 5 days a week! Join us!
FUNFITNESS is our one hour fitness program for kids run out of a local Mt. Vernon church. The program is 10 minutes of warm-up, 30 minutes of FUN MOVEment and 20 minutes of FREE play. We use the excitement and joy of FUNFITNESS activities to encourage our children to develop a lifetime of healthy habits.
In 2020, We Run Mt. Vernon organized the first annual Thanksgiving Turkey Trot 5K Run/Walk virtually. This year we will host a Live and Virtual Turkey Trot, so that participants can balance their bountiful dinners with MOVEment.
This year’s Turkey Trot takes place Live on Thanksgiving Day, November 25, 2021. If you can’t make the live event, our out-of-state and international friends can participate via a Virtual Trot from Sunday, November 21st to Saturday to November 27th 2021.
