NYRR Five-Borough Series: Queens 10K

 
 

This race has sold out but you can still run with Team for Kids. Find out how.


The third race in the 2015 NYRR Five-Borough Series brings runners to beautiful Flushing Meadows Corona Park for a flat, fast 10K with an 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. All entrants will receive a tech tank top and all finishers will receive a medal.

Live unofficial results are available during the race at liveresults.nyrr.org. Features include leaderboards, map tracking, and an individual runner search that can be shared on Facebook and Twitter. Tell your friends and family to follow your progress, and because the system works great on mobile devices, you can get unofficial results right after the race!

Please review our enhanced security measures.
