Runway 5K - Run for the Angels

Sat October 3 - Sun October 4 RaceJoy Ready


A Benefit Run/Walk for Angel Flight West anywhere you choose!

Like you, we're making changes in our lives during the COVID-19 outbreak and want you to know that we are acting with an abundance of care to make our environment as safe as possible for our race participants. So the Runway 5K will be a virtual race this year. 

What is a virtual race? A virtual race is a race that eliminates large gatherings and follows social distancing guidelines. It can be run (or walked) in any location you choose. You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself within a 36-hour window, any time between 10/3/2020 9:00 am and 10/4/2020 9:00 pm. You will upload your time and be placed in standings based on your age.

A Benefit Run/Walk for Angel Flight West around your own neighborhood, on your treadmill, in the hallways or any venue you can imagine!

Join us wherever you are!! Every adult registration from CA and CO is entered in a free opportunity drawing for two round-trip tickets on Alaska Airlines for a trip valid through 2021. (Must enter valid CA or CO address to enter)

Race "medals" awarded to all participants and special recognition to the fastest in these categories:

12 & under

T-Shirts, and Give-away Drawing! 

We'll do our very best to make sure everyone gets a t-shirt, but for registrations received after 9/3/2020 we can't guarantee it will arrive before the race date.



Adults: currently $30 Early Bird (through Aug 31st., $40 after Sept 1st.)
Kids (12 & under): $10 anytime
