The Race

Queen’s crown jewel–Flushing Meadows Park--is waiting for you to gear up and run either a 5k or 10k. If you haven't yet joined us in this gorgeous park, we think these April options are the perfect time to get acquainted, and if you know the park, prepare to get to know it even better.

This course welcomes runners of all levels and the post-race spread (including NYC's finest bagels!) beckons all at the finish of the race. Hope to see you out there!
