There’s nothing quite like running on a long, flat, straight runway. There’s something about it, that makes one think, ‘what am I doing out here?
Are you an aviation geek? Do you love a great, flat 5K, as well as plane-spotting, up close and personal? Asheville Regional Airport looks forward to welcoming you to the runway!(Ok – it’s now a taxiway, but it was our active runway!) Our race is the most unique 5K in the mountains – it’s completely FLAT, and hey – it’s on the airfield of the airport. Racers will run on Taxiway Bravo, beside our active Runway 17-35. Be sure to wave to the passengers in the planes that will be taking off and landing while you run! What are you waiting for?
