JFK Runway Run 5K Race- April 15, 2012

Running is a relatively new hobby for me that I got into it a little over a year ago. Last year I ran a bunch of races in the 5K range. Since my son Lucas was born, I’ve definitely been slacking.
When my good friend Lufthansa Flyer e-mailed me to let me know about a 5K race taking place at JFK Airport, I knew that it would be something that I had to sign up for.
TheJFK Runway Run is a unique 5K race. It is the only race in the U.S. held on the runway of a major international airport. The main runway is closed to aircraft landings and takeoffs. You get to run on the longest runway at JFK although only a short portion is used for the 5K.
A little about the race:
  • The JFK Runway Run is a major fundraiser of the JFK Rotary Club. Funds raised are used to support various charities. The race receives direct support from the Port Authority of NY & NJ who coordinates all logistics for preparing access to the runway on the day of the race.
  • A 5K is equal to 3.1 miles
  • All participants are registered in a special drawing for round trip airline tickets
The run takes place on April 15 at 9:00AM
