This year, Queens gets its own gobble gallop! Before stuffing yourself silly, bang out a 5K or 10K in beautiful Flushing Meadows park among the fall leaves and crisp skies. The completely traffic-free course winds through the park, with great views of the Unisphere—the best-known Queens landmark built for the 1964 World’s Fair, along with the Queens Museum.
Stick around for a bagel and a schmear, then explore the park’s nooks and crannies of sports fields, sculptures, and vast meadows before kicking off your holiday week. Gobble, gobble!
Bag check and toilets will be provided. Water and Gatorade will be available on the course, and bagels, spreads, fresh fruit and more will make up the usual great NYCRUNS post race spread to greet you at the finish line. Free finish line photos and video will be available on the results page. The giveaway for this race will be a tech t-shirt*.
