The 11th Annual Take Flight 5k.

Let your feet take flight on the Greenville Downtown Airport runway for one of the most unique running experiences and flattest 5k races around.


Join us on Memorial Day weekend at the Greenville Downtown Airport for the 10th Annual Take Flight 5K on Saturday, May 25th, 2024. Costumes and Competition are highly encouraged. Official groups will be publicly recognized. Prizes will be given out.


We earned enough last year to start the park expansion, add a picnic hangar, and fix some playground equipment! Let's add some swings and new playground equipment this year!!


We will take a moment to honor our fallen veterans with a small ceremony prior to the race. There are prizes to be silent auctioned off and trophies to be won. The Civil Air Patrol will present the colors and conduct the missing comrade ceremony.
