Your Running Route
Be on alert and vigilant while running. This is not a race, meaning that you are not on a closed course. Please try to find an area that is not too congested and be aware of your surroundings.
For this event, some of the PACE Runs team will be at Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens on August 8th at 9:30 AM to kick off the Virtual Festival Area. Look for us at the Globe located in Corona Park.

Running Etiquette: Social Distancing
Please practice social distancing when completing your virtual run. Running solo is the way to go! If your prefer running with others, we suggest running with just one other individual. Remember to remain at least 6 feet apart from each other.
Additionally, don't forget your face covering. Especially if you are completing your run during popular running hours, you want to make sure your mouth and nose is covered. If you are someone who has difficulty running with a face covering, try to beat the crowds!
Post your before, during and after pics/videos of your virtual experience to be featured in the PACE Runs virtual post run highlights slideshow.
