Greetings Valley Traveler!
Lace up your sneakers and gather your friends and family – registration opened TODAY for the 2nd Annual Run the Runway 5K + Kids Fun Run at SHD on April 13th!
The Run the Runway 5K is a family-friendly event beginning with a 1K Fun Run for children ages 3-12 at 8:30 am and a 5K on the taxiway and runway beginning at 9:00 AM. This professionally chip-timed event will offer a unique race opportunity on a real airport runway making it a perfect fit for runners, walkers and families at all fitness levels. The course is flat and completely paved making it stroller and wheelchair friendly.*
All proceeds from the Run the Runway 5K + Kids Fun Run will benefit the Explore More Museum’s aviation exhibit where children can learn about the many aspects of aviation including hands-on experience as a pilot, aircraft mechanic, air traffic controller, and passenger.
Through a partnership with Dynamic Aviation, the Explore More Museum has already installed a King Air fuselage as the anchor piece of this exhibit. Our Run the Runway 5K raised over $10K in 2018 and assisted in the installation of an air traffic control tower (shell only) and a partial airline terminal component of the exhibit.
Funds raised from the 2019 event will enable further development of this space including internal components of the air traffic control tower, a mock TSA screening area in the airline terminal and a hands-on aircraft maintenance component. We feel strongly this exhibit has the power to inspire the children of today to be our aviation workforce of tomorrow!
