Miles 2 and 3: Run completely around Meadow Lake.
Mile 4: Shortly after the three-mile mark, cross the Long Island Expressway on an overpass and turn left. Pass the Theatre in the Park and the Queens Museum.
Mile 5: Run an out-and-back to a turnaround near CitiField.
Mile 6: Approach the Unisphere, then circle it almost completely before turning right and running to the finish just before the Fountain of the Planets.
