Chinatown 7 Mile Run + MOCA Spike 150 Launch Event

Let’s re-create this Chinatown mini marathon back in 1976!

The country just had its bicentennial. Long summers. Black outs. Roller skates. Platform shoes. Charlie's Angels. Star Wars. Who knew running was a thing in '70s Chinatown!

2019 is the 150th anniversary of the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad. To commemorate the contribution of the Chinese laborer to this monumental railroad, Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA) has designated its 2019 TCS NYC Marathon event as MOCA Spike 150 – Running Forward With Our Stories! We encourage everyone to participate through 1) our national relay and 2) a story a day which consists of 150 Chinese American personal stories. We hope you will continue to follow and support us. Go tell your story. Reflect on the past; root in the present and embrace the future. Let us add to the American history, making it fuller and richer.
