BNA 5K on the Runway

Sat May 20, 2023 Nashville, TN 37217 US



We are anticipating rain for the 5K. The race will continue with the exception of lightning and severe weather – including hail/damaging winds/tornados/extreme heat. If lightning occurs, the race will be delayed, and participants will be asked to shelter in their vehicles. If the lightning continues over an hour, the race will be cancelled. Our primary goal is the safety of our participants. Stay connected for the latest updates on our social channels, website, and race emails. We look forward to seeing you take flight on the runway.  




A 5K run or walk at Nashville International Airport® on Runway 2R/20L. You will not find a flatter course to run in Nashville!


All proceeds will benefit the Gary Sinise Foundation, Boys & Girls Club, and the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

The Gary Sinise Foundation's mission is to serve our nation by honoring our defenders, veterans, first responders, their families, and those in need. The Boys & Girls Club of Middle Tennessee exists to provide boys and girls ages 6 to 18 with a safe, positive place to learn, grow and succeed. The Make-a-Wish Foundation's vision is to grant the wish of every child diagnosed with a critical illness.
