You will have four opportunities to pick up your Bib and #itsinqueens Goodie Bag prior to Sunday, April 21st. This is the most expansive packet pickup we’ve facilitated. As Queens does not have a traditional “Convention Center” (yet), we have taken the opportunity to stage locations across the Borough (with just one special exception), giving runners the chance to experience Queens in greater detail. Of course, if you would like to pick up your Bib on Race Morning, we will have your Number and Goodie Bag bright and early starting at 6:30AM.
Thursday- April 18th- 3pm/8pm
Urban Athletics, Manhattan
1291 Madison Avenue
We gratefully accept this generous offer from Urban Athletics, a Specialty Running Shop just across the East River, has agreed to label their product at 40% OFF for ALL QUEENS MARATHONERS. Some restrictions may apply. Can’t make it on Thursday? Drop by anytime throughout the course of the weekend and take advantage of this major perk!
Friday- April 19th- 12pm/6pm
Queens Theatre, Flushing Meadows Park
14 United Nations Ave S, Corona
We are very appreciative of the Queens Theatre for offering to let us use their Lobby for our Packet Pickup for Day #2. Only meters away from the Start and Finish Line, if you’re coming in on Friday, you’ll be tempted to head out for a Loop of the course! In fact, once we wrap up at 6PM, that’s precisely what we plan to do! (RSVP Link)
Saturday I- April 20th- 11am/3pm
Queens Center Mall- Modell’s Sporting Goods. Elmhurst
Entrance Between 57th and 59th Avenue on 92nd Street
Marathon Eve! A day so important, we staged TWO packet pickups. While you’re welcome to check out the Queens Center Mall, we will be stationed in the Modell’s that has it’s own separate entrance. You have to enter on 92nd Street between 57th and 59th Avenues, NOT the main entrance to the Mall. Modell’s will provide you with a set of coupons to use in-store when you arrive!
Saturday II- April 20th- 5pm/8pm
Sacs’ Place and Restaurant. Astoria
Everyone has their Pre-Marathon Ritual. While you may have already planned out the last Evening prior to Marathon Sunday, we have another deal for you, 15% off your Marathon Dinner at Sac’s Place-Astoria! Sac’s, as you’ll soon read up on, has been a major supporter of the Queens Distance Runners for years, fueling us with Carbs and Coal Oven Pizza. If you happen to make your way to Sac’s, make sure to show your bib, they’ll treat you like family. Once 8pm hits, our Marathon Packet Pickup comes to a close. Once again, you CAN pick up your bib on Marathon Sunday, between 6:30AM/7:30AM.
