Queens Distance Runners is a nonprofit 501 (c)3 Event Management Company under the group exemption provided by Road Runners Club of America.

We are a grassroots organization focused on attracting tourism to the growing borough of Queens through running and healthy activities. A county that is highly family oriented and proudly holds large groups of immigrants. Our mission is to provide a public good by creating and promoting race events that develops communities, small businesses and the state of fitness of our local residents.

We are focused on creating race events that accentuate the community it takes place in, Queens County. People visiting or living in Queens should come to expect that there will be frequent races that highlight our borough, and for an affordable price.


Across the borough, institutions from running clubs, businesses, and organizations work tirelessly towards the progression of Queens. We recognize and endorse the efforts of such entities.
