The Florida International Air Show has been delighting spectators with the history of aviation since 1981, this year they are pleased to announce a one-of-a-kind experience that will thrill the aviation and running enthusiast alike…
The Inaugural Florida International Air Show 5k!
This unique race will get you flying high as you circle around an active airport, through a spectacular static display of military, vintage, and civilian airplanes, and finish in true Top Gun fashion right on the runway!
After you make your final approach, fly through the finish line, receive your wings (finisher medal) and taxi over to the Tarmac After-Party to celebrate! Enjoy live music, yummy food, an ice-cold beer (first one is on us), and up-close viewing of all the aircraft on static display! Stick around for the rest of the day to view all the jaw dropping aerial performances at Florida International Air Show (air show ticket is included with registration)!
The Florida International Air Show (FIAS) organization is a 501(c) 4 Florida “not for profit” corporation and staffed entirely by volunteers. Monies raised by the Air Show and this event are distributed to local working charities, which directly support the show. To date, the Air Show has distributed $2.9 million to Southwest Florida working charities.
