Registration is now open for the Queens Marathon, QDR Half Marathon, and 10K. Join us in Flushing Meadows Corona Park for our 8th Annual Queens Marathon and 5th Annual QDR Half Marathon. Let's conquer the miles and celebrate Queens together—we do it for Queens!

We're thrilled to announce the addition of the Inaugural QDR 10K to our lineup! For those eager to join the festivities, this new event provides a fantastic opportunity to be part of the excitement. Feel free to stick around and cheer on the runners as they conquer the challenges of the half and full marathons. Let's make it a day filled with joy, camaraderie, and unforgettable accomplishments!

Personalized Fluid Station! (Strictly for Marathoners only. There will be multiple fluid stations on the course for all runners)

Marathoners only can check in up to 3 bottles of their own fluid no larger than 20 ounces at our Marathon Fluid Table 200 Meters after the start of your loops. Make sure your bib number is visible, and that bottles are clearly labeled with your bib number on each bottle for our Volunteers to hand off to you. This feature helped Marathoners tremendously with their performances, and we will do our best to ensure you have your bottles ready.

Attention - Due to Construction at Meadow Lake, we are unable to use the route that we have been racing on since 2020. However, this course is arguably faster, since it removes the windier sections of Meadow Lake.

10K - 1.5 Loops
Half Marathon - 3 Loops
Marathon - 6 Loops

The Queens Marathon is a USATF Certified, Boston Marathon Qualifier Course!

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.
