LaGuardia Airport 5K Runway Run- October 14, 2012

a group of people running on a road
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!
