AVL Runway 5K

Asheville Regional Airport


Run beside an active runway! The Runway 5K is exciting and unique - with exciting changes this year!

Ready to run the FLATTEST 5K in the mountains? And how about a morning with music, local food trucks (think coffee, smoothies, pastries) and better-than-ever plane spotting?

Asheville Regional Airport looks forward to welcoming you to the airfield!  

Our race is the most unique 5K in the mountains – it’s completely FLAT, and hey – it’s on the airfield of the airport. Racers will run on Taxiway Bravo, beside our active Runway 17-35. And NEW this year – we're moving the entire event to a new location on the north side of the airfield, so all attendees will be much closer to the taxiway and runway in the festival area. Be sure to wave to the passengers in the planes that will be taking off and landing while you run! What are you waiting for?
