THE RACE

The Falling Leaves Half & 5K returns to 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 full Spring bloom. Stick around for a bagel and a schmear, before heading into downtown flushing to sample the great ethnic cuisine - there's everything you can imagine (and perhaps a few things you cannot).

Event details and schedule

The USATF certified courses hit all the famous landmarks and some parts of FMP you may never have seen before.
