After a year off for runway reconstruction and airport upgrades we are back for our 9th Saint John Airport Race - this time a 6k* run using the newly constructed roads around the airport and the newly resurfaced runways. This is a brand new course for 2020 and will give you a different perspective of our wonderful local airport.
This is an incredibly unique opportunity to race on a completely traffic free course at Saint John Airport on the newly resurfaced runways.
We are proud to support the YMCA - Strong Communities Program through the race and $5.00 of every registration will be donated to the Y and extra donations can be made when you are going through the registration process.
Please note - we will also be holding a Duathlon (Run-Bike-Run) on the same day at the airport. Races will start at the same time. A separate registration page has been created for the Duathlon.
*actual race distance is 5.79k at present
