The chance to be part of an elite few who get to plant their feet on the ground of the O’Hare runway. Earn bragging rights by running on Runway 10R of Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, the world’s busiest airport.
The 5K on the Runway offers great views of active runways & photo opportunities for that perfect Selfie. Junior pilots even have the chance to climb into the cockpit with a Kids Run. Everyone can enjoy a party on the runway in the post-race area with a plane photo op, a touch-a-truck area to get up close with airport equipment along with food & beverage vendors on-site.
This year’s event benefits Cal’s Angels, a pediatric care organization that provides financial assistance to the families of kids fighting cancer.
