This is the first race held on the Wilmington airport runway. As you probably guessed, it will consist of an out-and-back on the runway, which is an excellent opportunity to get a 5k PR! Aside from the race, Aviation Day at the airport will include airplane displays, model flying club performances, kid’s activities, and food trucks.
