What we're about

Many of us are new to Long Island City, and some are even new to Queens. We've got an awesome neighborhood, great areas to run and there are lots of cool people in our 'hood. It's time to bring all of this together to make it all even better.

Our goal is to build a non-competitive, socially focused community of runners and fitness-focused people in LIC. We'll organize group runs, social outings and other adventures of interest. You can be a veteran ultramarathoner who has completed 30 races in the past month, a workaholic who finds time to run once per year or someone with a keen interest in running and are not sure where to start. You've all come to the right place.

This is your group - let us know when, where and how you want to run. Any and all suggestions are eagerly welcome.

Thursday Evening 4-6 Mile Run!

IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTE: Runners who have been fully vaccinated can run without a mask - AS LONG AS they submit proof of vaccination to Sabrina Chin, the organizer, via email (Can reply to one of the team emails) OR via MeetUp (Can message). Runners who have not been fully vaccinated must still wear a mask when running with the group. Runs will be capped at 15 runners (14 runners + 1 organizer) - so you MUST RSVP in advance, and your RSVP must be updated as needed to remain accurate, so that you do not take the place of another runner. There will be no bag check.

What: Evening Run! This is a no drop run for time, and distance will be 4-6 miles, depending on what the group is looking to do!
