Since 2013, we have gone the distance for Queens! It is our goal to “Bring runners to Queens and bring Queens to runners.” Our Membership Base of over 700 runners takes strength from runners hailing from across the world, represented within our Neighborhoods and communities.

Part competitive running club, part race Management Team, we are all about Queens! From transportation to major races, to organizing up to a dozen race events culminating in the annual Queens Marathon, to hosting over 100 team practices in the course of a calendar year, we invite you to take a look at all we are up to in the name of building the Queens Running Community.

Today was my last long run of the year, so to celebrate: My favorite run pic from 2018! (From the NYC Half in March)
I ran 2,231 miles this year. In all those miles, I PRd at every distance, ran my first mile race, won my first race, qualified for the Boston Marathon, oh and I joined a little running club @queensdistance 💛which had truly changed everything about running (and so much more!) for me.
I cannot wait to see how far I will go in 2019 🏃🏼‍♀️💨

Press Release- Queens, New York
(View the full Release on our @facebook and Website in our bio).

The Headline? The Queens Marathon, set for April 21st, has been selected by the Road Runners Club of America @rrcanational as the Site of the 2019 RRCA New York State Marathon Championship!

The fourth Queens Marathon, presented by Queens Distance Runners with significant support from the local community and the running community at large, will be the best ever. We’re eager to provide The World’s Borough with the event it deserves by celebrating Queens on the world stage. Our slogan “The World Is Waiting” has a two-fold meaning. The race is an individual runner’s springboard to future marathon success and it will bring a lifetime of distance running conquests throughout the globe, from New York to Boston to Berlin and beyond. The slogan also represents the inclusivity and diversity that is Queens’ signature: the Unisphere. The Unisphere is our borough’s symbol and a representation of the Queens Marathon. We would like nothing more than to see runners from around the globe conquer 26.2 miles right here in Queens.
