The third race in the 2014 NYRR Five-Borough Series brings runners to beautiful Flushing Meadows Corona Park for a flat, fast 10K with a new, early-summer date! Runners kicking off their training for the TCS New York City Marathon or any fall marathon will love this event.

Flushing Meadows Corona Park is easily reached by public transportation, and it' a great place to spend the day.
Runners: The forecast is for warm weather this weekend. Our plan is to stage the race as scheduled, but please stay tuned for updates.
