Cape May County’s Most Unique Event for 2015!

Runway 5K, Fun Walk & Bike

June 6, 2015 at 9:00 AM

New for 2015: Any paid runner or walker can bike the course prior to the race at 8AM for free. Anyone else interested in biking the course can do so for $5 cash paid the day of event. Bike preview time: approx. 8:10-8:40 am. All bikes must be cleared from course by 8:40 am.

With the cooperation of the Delaware River & Bay Authority (operators of the Cape May Airport), the airport will temporarily close to air traffic to allow runners and walkers this unique opportunity to compete on the runway! And, it’s for a good cause. Proceeds will benefit restoration efforts of historic Hangar #1 which is listed on both the National and State of NJ register of Historic Places. Enjoy a CAPE MAY BREW, bagels, fruits and refreshments post race! Electronic timing and officiating by TNT Event Management. Race day registration begins at 7 am, race begins promptly at 9 am! Early registration is highly recommended. Come join us!
