We Run the Culture started in 2020 with an idea to promote the benefits of walking and running to urban communities by hosting walks , 5K races, and fundraising events that always finish with a party vibe. We Run the Culture by setting trends in style , fashion, and music. Part of our mission here at We Run the Culture is to continue that trend into healthy living. First we run then we vibe.

A portion of the registration fee will always be given to a local charitable organization. The recipient from this event is Dollars 4 Homeless, a local non-profit organization that provides meals to the homeless population of Essex County.
