Weekly run club still going strong 1 year later

A group of weekly runners in Crotona Park is still going strong a year later.

The Crotona Park Running Club was started by Abiodun Bello.

He says he started the group because he had moved to the South Bronx and saw health problems like obesity affecting people in his community.

Bello says they have a core group of people who run or walk 5Ks every Saturday and Sunday. He says the club is free to join.
