It’s not every day that we enjoy the opportunity to race the streets of Queens. We invite you to stick around and support the event. We promise that our day in the most diverse neighborhood in the world will be special. 

The Queens Distance Runners thank you for your support across all these years. For residents and natives of Jackson Heights, we can only begin to imagine how memorable this day will be. One major step forward in our Mission Statement to “Bring runners to Queens, and Queens to runners.

Runners must check their baggage at least 30 minutes prior to the start of their heat at Northern Playground (94th Street). 

Upon completing your race, runners will walk forward to 75th Street, loop around the median of 34th Avenue, and walk back in the direction of Travers Park, your bag will be set in numerical order, and ready for pick up and join our festivities at Travers Park.

If you prefer to leave your bag directly at Travers Park, we ask that you do so at least 30 minutes prior to the start of your heat. You could use this as an opportunity to warm up to 94th Street.


Friday 8/27 - 6pm to 8pm at Travers Park. 78th Street and 34th Avenue


Runners will run south down 94th Street, and make the only right turn of the entire race, accessing the south road of 34th Avenue. There is a slight incline passing 82nd Street, but what goes up, must come down. Whether you go out hard or “sit and kick”, each and every runner has a steep downhill for nearly the entire final 400 meters. 

¼- 91st Street
½- 86th Street
¾- 81st Street
Finish- 76th Street
