Get ready to run the runway: Asheville Regional Airport Runway 5k to return in September


A fun event. Press release here on the Runway 5k at Asheville Regional Airport:

The Asheville Regional Airport Runway 5k + Aviation Day is back by popular demand!

That’s right — last year’s kick-off event celebrating the airport’s 50th anniversary was such a success that we’re bringing it back for 2012, this time with a very special Aviation Day featuring activities for the whole family — airplanes on display, aviation experts on hand, live music, food, activities, and a chance to win FREE airfare!

Plus, this year’s Runway 5k will take over the entire length of the AVL runway — all 8,001 feet of it — and we expect more than 1000 runners to be cleared for take-off!

The Aviation Day festivities put the focus on the thrill of aviation, and you can register to experience the thrill of zooming down the runway yourself as a 5k participant — and the t-shirts are super-cool!

Mark your calendars for the big day — Saturday, October 6 — and plan to register early for the 5k to take advantage of the early bird registration rate and to guarantee yourself a t-shirt! Early registration opens July 1, 2012; t-shirts guaranteed for registrations completed by September 1.

Time TBD – Event site opens for 5k runners
Time TBD – Runway 5k begins (registration opens July 1)

In addition, we’re proud to give back to the community and support aviation education with all proceeds from the event.
Registration opens July 1
