    In 2012 I had the chance to run in two 5K runway runs so far. In the spring I ran the JFK Runway Run and in the summer I ran in the Teterboro Airport Runway Run. The runway runs have been among my favorite races that I have participated in during the year.
    Now that fall is approaching, it's time for another runway run. On Sunday, October 14 the first ever LaGuardia Airport 5K Runway Run will take place to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.
    A little about the runway run (from the race website):
    For the first time ever, an opportunity to run on LaGuardia Airport's historic runway and taxiway system. Experience the airport from a pilot's perspective with the runway pavement beneath your feet. Run the routes used by major airline aircraft arriving and departing the metro region's favorite airport. Experience aviation where it all starts, at ground level!
    I can't say that LaGuardia Airport is my favorite in the region (or even the city) but I definitely want to run a 5K on the LGA runway!
    Some Details:
    • Walkers welcome (no strollers, bikes, skateboards or pets)
    • Entry includes t-shirt and goody bag
    • Food & refreshments after the race
    • Free parking at registration area
    • Awards for top 3 male & female finishers in each age category
    • Number pickup and day of race registration 7-8:30AM
    Race Fees:
    • $20 before 9/21/12
    • $25 after 9/21/12
    • $15 kids under 15 & military
    • Race day registration is $30

    Exciting. I'm thinking of signing up on race-day. Does anyone know how to get to hangar 7? Is this past the security clearance?

    From what the site says, it sold out earlier than expected...

    Yes but isn't that for online registration alone? I might go and see if race-day registration is available.

    Not positive. We signed up for the 5K about a month ago.

    Yes I agree but, I 'm anyway going. I contacted the race director and he said race-day registration will be available but t-shirts not guaranteed. and isn't that the reason why race-day registration is usually available?

    So this is at the marine terminal parking lot?

    Yes, I signed up at 8 AM and went into the race .

    Did you? I'm thinking if there are any official pics. The race was fun and well-organized.
