14h Annual AirVenture Runway 5K
Experience what becomes the world's busiest airport from a unique perspective. Whether this is your first or fourteenth Runway 5K, this charity fun run/walk is a great way to kick start your day! This year, the Runway 5K will be held on Saturday, July 28 during AirVenture Oshkosh 2018. The race kicks off at 7:00 a.m. at the Ultralight Barn and encourages everyone, including walkers, first-time runners, and seasoned athletes, to participate.
The course takes you through a tour of the AirVenture campus. You’ll gallop past incredible aircraft that have traveled the world, smell breakfast cooking at our various food stands, and get a preview of aviation exhibits of all types.
We invite you to stay the entirety of the day and explore everything that AirVenture has to offer. Shower facilities are available on our grounds. Gear Check closes at 9:30am. If anything at Gear Check is left behind after that time, they will be given to the main Lost & Found, which is located behind the Sky Shoppe.
Registration includes an official event T-shirt, post-race food and refreshments, and admission to AirVenture on race day. Please note that T-shirt size is NOT guaranteed for those who register after June 22, 2018.
