Airport Runway Run

New for 2018: The 2nd Annual Airport Runway Run will take place Sunday, April 22, 2018, and will now include a 2K Family Fun Run course!

Please save the date! Registration opens in January 2018. 

Express your need for speed with a unique 2K/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 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.

2017 Recap

The sold-out Airport Runway Run at San Carlos Airport was held Sunday, April 23 and raised funds for STEM education programs at Hiller Aviation Museum. Thank you to the participants, sponsors, volunteers, race organizing committee, and San Carlos Airport! You made the first-ever Airport Runway Run a success!
