Runners start the double-loop out-and-back course for the QDR Half Marathon in Flushing Meadows Corona Park, next to the Unisphere and the Fountain of the Continents. From there, you’ll run up and down the roads and trails inside the park, along roads with names like the Avenue of the Americas, the Avenue of Progress, the Path of Commerce and more. There’s a long stretch almost all the way around Meadow Lake in miles 3 and 4 (and again in miles 10 and 11), as you’ll run the same route twice before heading in to the finish line back in front of the Unisphere.
Note: The course map above provides the approximate route for the race.
