This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

The LIC Waterfront 5K returns to Long Island City streets and parks for the seventh time this June. The rain-or-shine event is open to runners and walkers alike. It will kick off at 9 a.m. at the intersection of Center Boulevard and Borden Avenue. Kids ages 2-9 will have an opportunity to take part in the fun with the Shibley Day Camp Center Boulevard Children's Dashes, immediately following the conclusion of the 5K at the same location. The event, which is open now to registration, receives special race-day support from local running groups Woodside-Sunnyside Runners and RUN LIC. Registrants receive a limited-edition race t-shirt and swag bag, with name-customized bibs for children and adults who register by May 20th, while supplies last. Medals will be presented to the fastest three men and three women of the 5K, and ribbons will be awarded to children who take part in the Dash. 5K race results will be available online, with photographs and video of participants crossing the finish line. Proceeds will support Hunters Point Parks Conservancy in its ongoing work to enhance and advocate for the parks and green spaces of Long Island City.
