Mark your calendars for the 3rd Annual Runway Run 5k at Pensacola International Airport, benefiting the USO in Northwest Florida, on December 5, 2015.
Pensacola International Airport and the City of Pensacola are excited to welcome thousands of runners and walkers to get a view of the Airport that many have never seen before! Participants will make their way around 3.1 miles of Airport ground, consisting of two separate loops on Runway 17/35 and Taxiway A.
“We are thrilled to bring this event back to the Airport,” said Interim Airport Director Dan Flynn. “The past two years have been a great success and we hope this event continues to grow year after year. We proudly support the USO and we look forward to another successful run at the Airport.”
“The Pensacola International Airport Runway Run was recently mentioned as 1 of 10 Runway Run events across two countries by AirlineReporter.com,” said Mayor Hayward. “Pensacola is a vibrant and active community and I am very excited to see such a unique concept return to our area for a third year.”
“We are proud to help with the management of this event in its third year,” said Paul Epstein of Running Wild. “We are looking forward to another year of working with the City and Pensacola International Airport to make this year’s run an even bigger success.”
“The USO and Pensacola International Airport have consistently looked for ways to support our nation’s heroes,” said USO Northwest Florida Director Heidi Blair. “This family friendly event benefits the USO and is such a fun way to show our troops that we are there for them every step of the way. ‘Takeoff’ is at 10 a.m. so bring your kids, friends, and neighbors to the 2015 Runway Run 5k!”
