Run, walk, or push a stroller while enjoying spring flowers at the Queens Botanical Garden (QBG) first-ever Daffodil Dash 4k Run in May.

In partnership with Queens Distance Runners and elitefeats, the QBG Daffodil Dash 4k Run will take place Saturday, May 4 at 8:00 a.m. at the QBG pathway. All proceeds will benefit QBG’s educational programs.

Daffodil Dash will be a fun opportunity to experience the Garden in a unique way—in running shoes!” says QBG Executive Director Susan Lacerte. “Come with friends, family, coworkers, and neighbors. Like all things at the Garden, we welcome anyone and everyone. You don’t need to be a seasoned runner to participate either; you can walk and even push a stroller if you’d like. However you finish the route, you’ll be sure to take in the view of our beautiful spring flowers.”
