The Kids of Queens

The Kids of Queens is the Flagship Youth Program for the Queens Distance Runners.

Every year we host multiple race events across the Borough of Queens. The Kids of Queens will shape the future of New York City. It is our legacy to leave them with the best possible foundation of support, free youth events, and the experience of training with athletes that cultivate and inspire the Queens Running Community.

Through our race revenues, donations, and Queens Plus Members, it is our goal to establish a calendar for The Kids of Queens to enjoy free group runs and training sessions across the Borough of Queens. The Kids of Queens will be close to home, allowing minimal commitment from families and excellent opportunities to network with the Queens Distance Runners.

Parents and guardians are allowed to register and run with Kids. Along with strollers, they will start towards the end of the pack.
