**Limited to 500 Runners, as of June 21st**

It is OFFICIAL. The 3rd Queens Distance Runners road race takes runners through the streets of Jackson Heights on August 28th, 2021. 

ALL PROCEEDS OF THE EVENT WILL BENEFIT THE VICTIMS OF THE JACKSON HEIGHTS 89TH STREET FIRE, ORGANIZED ON BEHALF OF THE 89TH STREET TENANT ASSOCIATION. 

In 2013, When QDR was founded by three mid-twenty fresh-out of college, we have always dreamed of the opportunity to welcome runners with the opportunity of racing our neighborhoods, while generating business for our local institutions, and supporting LOCAL causes.

Inching closer to these dreams, Queens Distance Runners has grown throughout the years, not only through our presence at numerous events across New York City, but through our own annual Race Events, organized across our Borough. With tremendous resiliency, QDR managed to increase membership and organize local initiatives in the midst of the pandemic. In 2020, our Jackson Heights Community Group Run (Meets at The Queensboro every Monday at 6PM) was founded to take advantage of the Open Streets of 34th Avenue.

As our organic and grassroots Race Events grew in scale, so did our foundation of committed Volunteers. This was on full display as in late 2020, QDR organized the only sanctioned Marathon in New York City, along with multiple rounds of the Inaugural QDR Half Marathon. Our success is shared, and we are grateful for the trust the community has placed in us to organize this Inaugural Jackson Heights Mile, sure to unite the running community with Jackson Heights, and vice versa. 

As we get closer to August 28th, we will unveil more details on the race, including Bib Pickup. Thank you for your support of Queens Distance. #queensdistance #jacksonheightsmile #queensisthefuture
