Unfortunately, the FAA has decided to strictly enforce a rule regarding events on runways. The airport that hosts the RUNway Mile did not submit the proper paperwork on time, so we will have to cancel or reschedule the event.
We have closed registration while we decide on the next steps. Rest assured, whether or not we reschedule, all currently registered runners will be offered a full refund.
We fully expect the RUNway Mile to return to its home at Heritage Field Airport in 2025.

UPDATE (May 24th): After many unsuccessful attempts to relocate and reschedule the mile (including at Pottstown Municipal Airport) we have decided to cancel the mile for 2024. All registered runners will receive full refunds back to their methods of payment. The RUNway Mile will return to Heritage Field Airport in 2025.
