Event Details

The Runway 5K Run is a certified run that takes place on a smooth, flat surface at one of the nation's most unique locations and busiest airports. A portion of the race course is on one of the Airport's taxiways and provides up close and exciting views of planes landing and taking off, the terminal complex and a scenic view of the Uptown Charlotte skyline. The course is wheelchair accessible and baby stroller friendly.

A variety of activities will be available for children, including a bounce house.
