NYRR Queens 10k 2018

As races are run in New York during the year, they are often done with an eye towards the following year’s races. By running with New York Road Runners during the year, it is possible to gain entries for the New York City Marathon and New York City Half Marathon, and running the five borough series works towards entries for both.

New York Road Runners has two big races every year – the NYC Half Marathon and the NYC Marathon – and the easiest way to enter each is to run a number of qualifying races the prior year to enter each. The NYRR Queens 10K, which has replaced the Queens Half Marathon in recent years, is one of the NYRR’s five borough series and a qualifier for both.

Recap: Queens 10K 2014

As marathon training began earlier this year, it became time to start running races again to prepare for the big races. The Queens 10k is one of the five borough races to qualify for the NYC Half marathon the following March. As such, I decided to wake up early Sunday morning to head out to run.

Road To the 2013 NY Marathon: Queens 10K

In order to get an automatic entry into the coveted New York Marathon, a runner can complete 9 races and volunteer for one, to complete what is called the 9+1. This guarantees a place in the following year’s marathon. For the NYC Half Marathon, there is a similar program, where a runner can run four out of five of the borough races and gain entry. This past weekend, the Queens 10K was one of these races.
