About the event

New 10K Race Option on May 14th 2016!

Race packet pick-up for pre-registrants and day-of-race registration will open at 8:30 am the morning of the race and close at 9:30 am. Please factor in the extra time you will need to walk to the registration area within the Park. Race start is at 10:00am.

We highly recommend that you familiarize yourself with the directions to the registration area within the park before race day. It is a big park and we don’t want you to get lost. There will be signs directing participants to the registration area from the boathouse parking lot and from the Unisphere. If you are coming from the Mets-Willets Point subway station you will have to walk a little over a mile to get to the registration area.   

The coordinates of the registration area are: 40.739917,-73.842188. Kindly be sure to look over the Driving directions and public transportation »

PLEASE NOTE: We will not have a Kids Fun Run in May 2016. Only children 13 and above are allowed to sign up for the 5K / 10K races in May. 

Children have to be at least 13 years old to run the 5K and 10K races.  

There is a gear drop-off area, and aid stations every mile around the course. Refreshments are available after the race.

FROM KENNEDY AIRPORT:

Exit Kennedy Airport to Van Wyck Expressway North. Drive approx. 5 miles to exit 12A East L.I. Expressway. Immediately on the left you will see a brown road sign announcing Meadow Lake. Turn left about 100 meters past this sign. This is a U-turn under the expressway which places you on the access road for the Van Wyck Expressway going South. Stay to your right and take the first exit you come to marked Flushing Meadow Corona Park/ Meadow Lake. See directions to race site within Flushing Meadow Corona Park. (see map)

DIRECTIONS TO RACE SITE WITHIN FLUSHING MEADOW CORONA PARK:

After exiting the Van Wyck Expressway, make a right at the end of the exit. You are now in the Park and must obey the 5 mph speed limit. You will soon come to a parking lot- park here. From the parking lot walk across the auto-bridge that has a 'Do Not Enter' sign and stay left on the other side. Continue on the main road keeping Meadow Lake in sight. The race site is 400 meters fromthe brdige by the brick Park Comfort Station. (see map)

The closest subway station is Mets-Willets Point on the number 7 subway line (see subway map).

Exit the train and follow the signs to Flushing Meadows Corona Park. This will lead you across a bridge. Essentially, you'll first head for the Unisphere - pass it - and then walk over a highway to get to the North end of Meadow Lake. (see map)
