Race Information

Queens is all about diversity. It’s NYC’s second most populous borough with 2.3 M people living in a community with the highest rate of racial and ethnic variety of all populous counties in the nation. So, there is no better way to start and finish a race in Queens, NYC than at the famous Unisphere.

You’ll run past it four times on a relatively flat and fast course with two small uphill sections when you cross an overpass. The views from the overpass are so beautiful that you’ll hardly notice and the sprinklers will be on by the time you finish so that you can cool down.
