Description

This year is the 12th year that runners and walkers will have the unique opportunity to run on one of the countries' busiest airports runways. This year is special because the Run is a key event for CLT250, a yearlong celebration of Charlotte’s 250th anniversary.

 

It is an amazing experience to run and see planes queuing up and taking off.  This race offers a flat and fast course.  It is an experience that the whole family will enjoy!

This is the first year proceeds will help fund an Airport Opportunity Scholarship with Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC) created to promote careers in aviation, as well as economic opportunities in Charlotte. The Airport scholarship will benefit students who are graduates of high schools in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School (CMS) district and are Title 1 eligible. Each recipient will attend CPCC’s Summer Bridge academic enrichment program and enroll in a two-year, career focused degree program specific to the Aviation Department.

We would like to inform all runners and spectators alike that they must register prior to race day to be allowed onto the secure airfield.  The spectators will be able to watch for free but, for security purposes, they must register to be at the event.  

 

THERE WILL BE NO RACE DAY REGISTRATIONS. NO EXCEPTIONS. 

 

WE DO NOT OFFER REFUNDS, TRANSFERS, OR EXCHANGES.  We ask that you respect this for security purposes. This is an event that takes place on a secure portion of CLT's airfield. 

 

If you would like to be a sponsor of this well attended and exciting event, please contact us using the link below.

 

 Participant T-shirts were guaranteed prior to Oct. 10.  Please check in race day after the race to see if there are any left.
