Our team, the Forest Park Runners Club (New York Road Runners Club code FPRR) has been running/walking/resting/recovering since 1980. We are one of the original running clubs in all of Queens and one of the longest active running teams in all of NEW YORK CITY! We bond by running/walking together on weekday and holiday morning group runs/walks in Forest Park. We also compete in races in Queens, Central Park and all over NYC, LI, the USA and the world. We are a social club with an annual awards party and other social events.
We are an organization where members pay annual dues. However we welcome you to run with us before payment. First year dues are $10. Renewal dues are $10 annually.
Our premier event is the annual Spring road and trail race: the Forest Park Classic 4 Miler. We also organize an annual Summer series of 1 mile no frill races on 3 Thursday evenings in July.
Our team is great because our members are great. And no matter the size of the team, our members have always been part of the family. We run because we love life, and want to pursue it in the healthiest and happiest manner possible. Just like Manhattan has its Central Park, and Brooklyn has its Prospect Park, the Forest Park Runners has its own amazing park to train in as well (Forest Park). Please come back soon as we would love to tell you more about the Forest Park Road Runners illustrious history and heritage!
