3rd Annual Airport Runway Run at San Carlos Airport

Certified 5K and 10K

2K Fun Run

Registration Now Open!

Express your need for speed with a unique 2K/5K/10K running event that’s fun and healthy for the whole family.

Registration includes:

  • Race T-shirt
  • Admission to Hiller Aviation Museum on Race Day
  • Goody Bag
  • Sponsor Fair with Family Friendly Activities
  • Entry in Bib Raffle
  • Chip Timing and Eligibility for Race Awards (for 5K and 10K only)

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.

Proceeds of the Airport Runway Run benefit Hiller Aviation Museum, a 501c3 nonprofit educational organization that provides science and aviation programming.
