The Never Stop Running Foundation is hosting their annual Easter run at Flushing Meadows Corona Park this Sunday, Mar. 31.

Participants will have the option to race in the 5k or 10k. Those of all skill levels are invited to spend Easter morning running, walking or jogging in the race of their choice. For those unable make it in person, a virtual 5k and 10k is available for participation as well.

Runners will head to the start of the race at the Queens Museum building on Meridian Road, located inside the park. The race is scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m. Participants also have the option to join or create their own teams for the race.

Kids will also have the option to participate in a free kiddie run, scheduled to start at 9 a.m. Participants will get a “Hoppin’ Easter Bunny” t-shirt and a “Great Easter Medal” to match. Pricing for the 5k and 10k is $40 and $45 per person respectively.

Proceeds of the event go to the  Never Stop Running Foundation, a nonprofit that donates funds to athletic and charitable events in local communities. To sign up for the event click here.
