Join Angel Flight West for our 4th Annual RUNWAY 5K - Run for the Angels benefit run/walk for Angel Flight West presented by our partner HDR at Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport (RMMA) in Broomfield on Saturday, October 3rd, 2020 at 9am. RMMA will close two major runways for a beautiful run in the foothills of Colorado!

This unique "RUNway" experience will benefit Angel Flight West  -  an organization that delivers health and hope using donated flights to serve those with healthcare or other compelling human needs. In the air, Angel Flight West links volunteer pilots and commercial airlines with people whose non-emergency health needs require air transportation to access care. On the ground, volunteer "Earth Angels" ferry passengers to and from their departure and destination airports. There is never a charge to passengers.

"The Runway 5K - Run for the Angels race is a fantastic race for an amazing organization. I didn’t know much about the Angel Flight West organization prior to participating, but the stories of the volunteer pilots and the flight recipients were moving and inspiring. The course is truly fun and unique! What other 5K can you run on an active airport runway where you can look down the runway as if you were a pilot and picture what it would be like to take off into the beautiful fall Colorado sky?"  Sean Oroho (2018 Course Record) 

“The experience of running on this flat runway was truly amazing, it led to my best 5K time in 2018.  If you are looking for a course built for speed this is definitely it.”     ~ Adam Begin (Top Finishers - 2018)

For exact parking location, scroll down to map. We will do our very best to make sure everyone gets a t-shirt, but for registrations after 9/20/2020 they are not guaranteed.
