Runway Racing is Back!

Saturday, August 17| 9:00 AM

Are you an aviation enthusiast? It’s time for one of the most unique 5K runs in the mountains that is just for you!

Our race stands out as the most distinctive 5K in the mountains—it’s impeccably level, and guess what? It takes place right on the airfield of the airport. Participants will traverse Taxiway Bravo, adjacent to our bustling Runway 17-35. Don’t forget to give a friendly wave to the passengers in the planes as they take off and land amidst your run!


Online registration will open Monday, April 15 and closes at 9:00 PM on Wednesday, August 14th.

Race Cap:

The race is limited to 1,000 participants

Location + Parking:

All race-day activities will take place at the southwest corner of the airport.  There is no parking on site, but shuttles will take you and your supporters to and from the race venue via a parking area across from Corcoran River Park at 9 River Road in Arden.

IMPORTANT: use Google Maps for directions; DO NOT use Apple Maps because it gives incorrect driving directions based on your starting point. You do NOT access the parking area via the airport campus. You will access Pinner Road from Glenn Bridge Road.
