In 2016, the race moved to a new location at scenic and historic Fort Totten Park near Bayside, Queens. It took place on the WARM (in the middle of a heat wave) evening of Saturday July 23rd, but in spite of the heat, 109 runners completed more than 2,666 miles in total (or an average of more than 24 miles each). Special congratulations to the men's leader, Matt McKenna, with 44.21 miles; and to the lead women, April Lemieux, with 34.28 miles.
