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.

Queens Distance Runners

This Sunday, we welcome ALL Spring Marathoners to our 30K Spring Marathon Tune-Up at Flushing Meadows Park! That’s 18.6 Miles 🤗

Bib Pickup Starts at 7AM near the Queens Unisphere, the Tune-Up begins at 8AM

Appropriate for any Spring Marathoner, you'll reap plenty of benefits with this 30K. For anyone brave enough to have trained for their Goal Marathon through the winter, this one is for you. For anyone running the 4th Annual Queens Marathon, this route largely mirrors next Month’s course!

Our new 5K Loop is one that we spent several wintery months trying to hammer down in time precisely for this time of year.

PACERS WANTED- We've almost got our Pace Team! Pacers are required to only make it through 20K (unless they would like to make it to 25 or 30K) at the following paces.DM us if interested!

6:45, 7:15, 7:45, 8:30, 9:00, 9:45

All that complete the 6 Loops will receive a Medal 🏅 for completing the 30K.

We'd like to thank Generation UCAN and Brooklyn Running Company for teaming up with the Spring Marathon Tune-Up and adding extra coverage to our Tune-Up. We look forward to seeing you take several steps closer to your goal Spring Marathon! #queensdistance #linkinbio📲💻 #queensnyc🌎 #springmarathontuneup #qdr30k #elitefeats #flushingmeadowspark #itsinqueens #springmarathon #runners #marathoners
