New York > NYRR Half Marathon Series: Queens Half Marathon
New York-Queens, NY



Saturday, July 30, 2011

Event Details

The sound of planes taking off and landing at nearby LaGuardia Airport are the signature sound you'll hear along the course of the Queens leg of the New York Road Runners Half-Marathon Grand Prix, as the race course takes runners within shouting distance of the airport from its starting line at Flushing Meadows Corona Park.

The third of five races in the Grand Prix, the Queens half marathon also offers numerous sights along the way for runners, including Frank Golden Memorial Park and Francis Lewis Park, as well as plenty of views of the sound and the bridges that lead over into the Bronx.

From the starting line, this fast, flat out-and-back course takes participants southward through the neighborhoods of the College Point district and then eastward into the Whitestone and Beechhurst areas, zigging and zagging through neighborhoods winding its way back to the park through New York's largest and most diverse borough for the finish.

Race participants are limited to three hours on the course, after which time medical stations and refreshments will no longer be available. The race starts at 7:00 AM.

Race Weather & Climate

Located across the East River from Manhattan, the borough of Queens typically experiences weather much like those of New York City, where average monthly temperatures for the month of July range between 83°F and 68°F. On the day of the race (July 30), the city's average high is 84°F and its average low is 68°F, while rainfall totals average just under 4.2 inches for the month.


$40 for the half marathon, if registered by July 15, 2011
