    Race the Runways offers a 1 mile race, a 5K and a half marathon. Participants in the 5K or the half can easily do the one-mile race before their other race start. Parking is conveniently close, and bib pickup is inside a nearby gym. You can stay in the gym before and after the race to keep warm. There are indoor bathrooms and porta potties outside near the start.

    I have run this race in 2014, 2015 and 2016. In 2015 the race used a new course for the half marathon that was a positive improvement over the old course- the minor rolling hills at the beginning were removed, and we had more time on the runway. 2016 kept this new course and changed it slightly.

    The course has little to no cars on it (most of the cars you see are actually race support vehicles). As the course is partially on a runway and goes on the roads of an airport, expect occasional strong wind blasts. Also, the water stops are placed outside the runway areas and there is a little bit of a long stretch without water stations (they cannot set them up on the runway). Don’t be surprised if there are planes taking offer and landing over you while you’re on the course. It’s actually a really cool experience. You are never in danger as the runway we’re on is closed to air traffic during the event.

    The race shirt and medal are excellent. For the price, you get a very well-supported, small race that I would recommend. The course time limits are also walker friendly.

    The weather can change drastically from year to year. Plan to wear something you can vent or partially zipper down, as you may find yourself going from cold to warm repeatedly depending upon the wind and where you are on the course.
