The 2018 races take place in Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens, Marine Park in Brooklyn, Inwood Hill Park in Manhattan, Crotona Park in the Bronx and Conference House Park on Staten Island, on a course featuring 12 activity stations. Team members must properly perform the required exercise or task before advancing to the next station and final run to the finish line.
