 Thank you to everyone who came out for a spectacular fall morning at the Asheville Regional Airport – Participants, Spectators, Sponsors and Volunteers.  It was a great event and we cannot wait to do it again next year.

Results are posted below and if you won an award an award but did not stay to receive it, you may pick it up at Guest Services at the airport starting on Tuesday, October 18.

Race Cap:
The race is limited to 1,000 participants

Two Runways, Two Races, One Day
The AVL Runway 5K is the first two races in the Asheville area that take place at airports. Later that evening, the Ascent at Mountain Air 5K in Burnsville takes runners up 1,800 feet to the community’s private airstrip and the most spectacular finish line you will find anywhere. Our friends at Asheville Regional Airport are providing a prize to all runners who complete both races that day. In addition, Mountain Air is awarding the fastest combined time (male or female), a weekend getaway at Mountain Air.

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 the WNC Ag Center, Gate 7 (761 Boylston Hwy, Fletcher NC).
