Queens Unisphere at Flushing Meadows Park
Queens Museum Parking at Flushing Meadows Park

Race Day Bib Pickup Starts at the Queens Unisphere at 6:30AM. One Mass Start

Personalized Fluid Station! (Strictly for Marathoners only. In addition, there will be multiple fluid stations on the course)

Marathoners can check in up to 3 bottles no larger than 20 ounces at our Marathon Fluid Table 200 Meters after the start of your 2nd, 3rd and Final Loop. Make sure your bib number is visible, and that bottles are clearly labeled with your bib number for our Volunteers to hand off to you.

Attention - Due to Construction at Meadow Lake, we are unable to use the route that we have been racing on since 2020. We have been hard at work crafting a route that is nearly identical, while removing most of the distance at Meadow Lake.

Half Marathon- 3 Loops
Marathon- 6 Loops

We will make sure that this course is USATF Certified, and a Boston Marathon Qualifier. This will also make it easier for spectators, friends and loved ones to catch you at more spots in Flushing Meadows, while removing some of the brutal wind and potentially flooded roads at Meadow Lake. Our roads to the streets of Queens continues right here at Flushing Meadows Corona Park, and we look forward to seeing you on April 2nd, and November 19th!

In the event the Parks Department and/or the city/state decides in favor of a protocol that impacts our event, then we will immediately notify all registered runners of next steps. We send out brief, but informative newsletters to all participants in anticipation of the event.

Represent in Queens! If you wish to register a NEW TEAM, please follow the instructions below under “Join Team” and “Create Team”. Once a Team is created, it will be available to be selected by anyone.
