Flushing Meadows Corona ParkGrand Central Parkway Queens, NY 11354
The NYCRUNS Queens 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 fall glory. Afterwards, head 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 scheduleCOVID-19
COVID-19 has changed many things about our events. The following procedures will be in effect for this event:
- You may not attend the event if you have experienced symptoms of COVID-19 or tested positive in the fourteen (14) days prior to the event.
- You must wear a face covering throughout this event other than when running. When running, you may remove the covering only when you can maintain social distance and the covering must remain around your head in some fashion so it can easily be reapplied.
- No guests are allowed at the race site
- Upon entry to the race site, a medical professional will take and record your temperature.
- To avoid crowding, you must show up on time for your designated wave and leave immediately after completing your race.
- Running in a group of two or more is not permitted.
- If you test positive for COVID-19 within the fourteen days following the event, you must email email@example.com so that we may notify staff and participants as necessary.
Prior to the race you will receive details on exact procedures for this event.
We hit all the famous landmarks and some parts of FMP you may never have seen before.
We will start the race in multiple socially distant waves, beginning as early as 7 AM and ending at noon. Your wave will be pre-determined and may not be changed. We cannot advise you of exact wave time until the week of the race. Please arrive no more than 30 minutes prior to your wave to avoid crowding on the race site.
Bag check will be provided. To reduce interaction with staff, we encourage you to avoid checking a bag. If you plan on checking a bag, you must use the single clear bag provided by NYCRUNS. You may not put another full bag/backpack/briefcase inside the clear bag. All items must fit inside the clear bag. NYCRUNS reserves the right to search your bag at any time.
Toilets will be provided and cleaned throughout the event.
While we encourage you to bring your own hydration, water will be available on the course and at the finish. Due to COVID-19, we will forgo bagels, spreads and fresh fruit but we will have post-run snacks at the finish line.
The giveaway for this race will be a tech shirt*. Free finish line photos and video will be available on your results page within a week of the race.
* In order to cut down on waste, we try not to overorder and sizes are not guaranteed. We recommend you register as early as possible to ensure you get your size mailed to you.
