48 Hours away from your Queens Marathon, we will take a Loop for ourselves and trace the steps of your triumph the day before!
Meetup- 5:45PM- Queens Marathon Start/Finish Line (Queens Theatre)
Shakeout Starts- 6:15PM Sharp (You are welcome to run as much or as limited of a distance as you like)
The route takes you down to Meadow Lake, sweeping around Sri Chinmoy Way, back over Meadow Lake Bridge, behind the New York State Pavilion and our range of Cherry Blossom past the Overpass.
From there, you'll sweep around the baseball fields, passing the carousel and heading back over the overpass, with the picture-esque NY State Pavilion ahead of you. From there, you'll make a left turn, passing the crown jewel of the Borough of Queens, the Unishphere, then hook a left, approaching the hall of science for the only roundabout of the loop, and heading back to the Unisphere.
Here, the Loop becomes more open, as you pass the USTA Center, make a right turn to the Industry Pond and down where you'll make a right turn and see the Unisphere in view. From here, you'll make a right turn beforehand, and then a left where you'll pass the Unisphere one last time to signal the end of your loop!
While this is prioritized for the Marathoners, this Shakeout is open to all runners. This is one of our last shakeout runs scheduled by the Queens Distance Runners prior to the Queens Marathon!
