Experience what becomes the world's busiest airport from a completely unique perspective. Whether this is your first or your twelfth Runway 5K, this charity run/walk is a great way to kick start your day! Enjoy a thrilling 3.1-mile race through the heart of the world’s busiest airport. It’ll leave you breathless (in a good way).
The 13th annual Runway 5K will be held Saturday, July 29 during AirVenture Oshkosh 2017. The race kicks off at 7:00 a.m. and encourages everyone, including walkers, first-time runners, and seasoned athletes, to participate.
A new route will take you through a tour of the AirVenture campus, past incredible aircraft that has traveled the world, and aviation exhibits of all sizes. When you cross the finish line (go you!), you’ll realize that you’ll never run another 5K quite like this one again.
You do not need an AirVenture pass to participate in the race, but we invite you to stay the entirety of the day and explore everything that AirVenture has to offer. When you register, you’ll have the opportunity to purchase discounted day-of admission. Shower facilities are available on our grounds.
Registration includes an official event T-shirt, post-race food and refreshments, and an opportunity to purchase discounted admission to AirVenture on race day. Please note that T-shirt size is NOT guaranteed for those who register after July 1, 2017.
Please check back soon for the registration link.
Proceeds from this year’s run benefit the EAA Collegiate Volunteer Program, helping students gain the volunteer and job experience they need to succeed after college.
