Airport Runway Run

Sunday, April 23 at San Carlos Airport benefiting Hiller Aviation Museum

Early Bird Registration closes Feb. 28!

7 am Museum Opens
8 am Race Begins

Post-race Sponsor Fair with Wellness Wing continues until noon!

Express your need for speed with a unique 5K/10K running event that’s fun and healthy for the whole family.

The start of the race route is the San Carlos Airport runway! Like an aircraft on takeoff, you will traverse the length of the entire 2,600 foot runway before continuing through the beautiful wetlands of the Don Edwards Nature Preserve on Bair Island, then return to the airport and conclude at Hiller Aviation Museum. This is one of the most interesting and beautiful running, jogging, and walking experiences in the Bay Area.

Race volunteers are also needed. Help distribute race bibs and t-shirts, monitor the course, staff a water station, etc.
