About This Activity

THE RACE

Sorry - The 5K Is Sold Out

The NYCRUNS Queens 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, then explore the park’s nooks and crannies of sports fields, sculptures, and vast meadows 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
