THE RACE

Join us for the 2022 NYCRUNS Go Nuts For Donuts Half Marathon & 5K and a foliage filled tour of Flushing Meadows Park. The traffic-free course winds through the park, with great views of all the World's Fair sites and of course FMP in all its glory.

Afterwards, head into downtown Flushing to sample the great ethnic cuisine - there's everything you can imagine (and perhaps a few things you cannot).

THE COURSE

We hit all the famous landmarks and some parts of FMP you may never have seen before.
