Are you an AV-geek? Do you love a great 5K, as well as plane-spotting, up close and personal?
Asheville Regional Airport looks forward to welcoming you to the runway!
Our race is the most unique 5K in the mountains – it’s completely FLAT, and hey – it’s on the airfield of the airport. The Runway 5K course is really fun! It begins on a road near the airfield. Once you enter the taxiway (that was our active runway for many years), you will run south to the end, loop around and run north to the other end, and then back again to the finish line. Just 150 feet to the east is the active runway, where planes will be taking off and landing during the race (so cool!).
Worried about loud airplane noise? We will have special ear plugs for protection while running, for those who need them.
*Note: The race will be held, rain or shine. If an unforeseen circumstance causes the race to cancel, a new date will be chosen in Spring 2023, and all registered participants will be notified. No refunds will be issued.
