NYCRUNS Virtual Queens Half Marathon & 5K

Start Time: 9:00 AM
Queens, NY


The NYCRUNS Queens Half Marathon & 5K has been rescheduled for November 21st. However, the Virtual Race is on, it's part of the Triboro Challenge, and Anyone Can Win!

Here's how it works.

  1. Register For Either Distance Today - Predict your time as accurately as possible.
  2. Run the distance between April 4th and April 29th. You can run the distance as many times as you want. You can run anywhere you want.
  3. Record your runs with your GPS device of choice and send us the one that is closest to your predicted time. When you register, you'll receive instructions on how to submit your results to us. We'll even attach a selfie from the finish line if you like!

The runner with the most accurate predictions in each distance will win $100. in race credit. The 2nd most accurate in each distance will win $50. in race credit, and the 3rd most accurate in each distance will win $25.

One note on measuring with GPS - it's a bit inaccurate. Your result must measure 13.1 miles exactly, or we will make adjustments to assure fair scoring. Due to how GPS works, this will probably be a bit less than a half marathon, so we suggest running another .25 miles before you start your GPS.

Your bib and medal will be delivered to you by 4/3 if you register by 3/29. We are attempting to get shirts delivered by 4/3 as well. However, they may be shipped separately due to logistical issues. If you register after 3/29, expect to receive materials by 4/10.

Note: Due to shipping restrictions, we cannot ship outside of the United States.


Virtual races have been around for a few years at least and come in all shapes and sizes. Largely though, they are designed so that you can do the race you want when you want. Once you have completed it (or if you want to try 10 times, that's fine too), send us the results and we'll publish them like any other NYCRUNS race. Just remember, these are meant to be a way to have fun and the most important thing is that you Win Your Race!

Once you register you'll receive further instructions on how to send us results. If you have any questions, just email [email protected]


You like your bling and you want everyone to know how hardcore you are? Then run either the NYCRUNS Brooklyn Marathon or Brooklyn Half Marathon, the NYCRUNS Queens Half Marathon, and either the NYCRUNS Central Park Half Marathon or the  NYCRUNS Big Apple Half Marathon and in addition to the great medals we give out for each race, receive an additional medal not to be believed!


Totally up to you.
