Welcome to the 7th edition of the YSJ 10k & 5K race on the Runway at Saint John Airport on Saturday 17 June 2017. We are proud to be the original Maritime Airport race and we are excited to work with our colleagues at Saint John Airport in the build up to the race. This year we will be holding the race on the same day as the Airport Community Day.
In 2017 the Saint John Airport race is proud to partner with the Undie Run for a very unique event. Let us see your UNDIES... on June 17, put them on the outside where we can all see them and help put cancer down there out in the open. This event is to help bring awareness to cancers down there, particularly colon cancer and cervical cancer. These very serious diseases need to be discussed and we all need to join the fight.
