Lace up your running shoes and join us at the Shenandoah Valley Regional Airport for the Run the Runway 5K + Kids Fun Run on October 17, 2021!
The Run the Runway 5K is a family-friendly event beginning with a 1K Fun Run for children ages 3-12 at 1:30pm and a 5K on the taxiway and runway beginning at 2pm. This professionally chip-timed event will offer a unique race opportunity on a real airport runway and is a perfect fit for runners, walkers and families at all fitness levels. The course is flat and completely paved making it stroller and wheelchair friendly. Please leave pets at home for this event; animals will not be allowed to participate.
The race will take place in person, however a virtual option will be offered for those who wish to participate remotely. Details about the virtual run will be released as the event approaches.
All proceeds will benefit the Explore More Discovery Museum's aviation exhibit where children learn about the many aspects of aviation including hands-on experience as a pilot, aircraft mechanic, air traffic controller and passenger. By supporting this event through sponsorship or registration, you will assist the museum to fulfill their mission of “engaging young minds through interactive, multi-sensory learning experiences that promote greater understanding of themselves and their world.”
