    Asheville Regional Airport :: Runway 5k

    Asheville Regional Airport and Mission Health invite you to “re-live” a nostalgic day at the airport—or to create a similar memory with your own children or grandchildren. In honor of the airport’s 50th anniversary, we are opening a portion of the airfield adjacent to the runway for
    one day only, and you are invited!

    Saturday, October 1, 2011 6:30am - Event site opens for 5k runners
    9am - Runway 5k begins (registration required)

    That’s right! You will have the chance to run on the runway at Asheville Regional Airport! (Can’t get closer to the airfield than that!) Registration is limited to 1,000 runners, and runners get a really cool
    t-shirt and a chance to win some great prizes.

    10am–1pm Healthy Fun Day—with something great for people of all ages!
    Hangar #6 adjacent to the taxiway and runway is the place to be!

    Follow the link for more info about the activities, rides, and giveaways at the free events.

    CAE is also hosting a runway run.

    Runway Run
    The Columbia Metropolitan Airport re-opened the main runway on Monday, November 22, 2010, after completing a 7-month reconstruction project. The work on Runway 11/29, 8601’ in length, includes replacing the asphalt pavement with concrete pavement and replacing the lighting system with new LED lighting.

    To celebrate the opening of our runway, we hosted a 5k Run and 1-Mile Wing Walk on Saturday, November 20,2010, at 10 a.m. It was such a great success we will be running this event ANNUALLY! We are excited to announce the 2nd Annual Runway Run 5k Run and 1-Mile Wing Walk will be held on Saturday, October 29, 2011. Please check back soon for more exciting details.

    Could we convince the resident airlines to give miles to each participant?
