Naval Air Station Wildwood (NASW) Aviation Museum, located at the Cape May Airport, is excited to bring this event back to historic Hangar #1! 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 finish INSIDE THE MUSEUM! 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 music, a FREE Craft Beer, bagels, water, fruits and refreshments post-race! Electronic timing and officiating by TNT Event Management. Race day registration begins at 7am, race begins promptly at 9am! Early registration is highly recommended. Come join us!
