Running enthusiasts can navigate a unique, aircraft-lined course by competing in the fifth annual EAA Runway 5K, scheduled for Saturday, July 30, at 7 a.m. during AirVenture 2011 at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh. The 3.1-mile run/walk through the convention grounds will benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Oshkosh, YMCA Strong Kids Fund, and Cerebral Palsy of Mideast Wisconsin.
The first 1,000 to register will receive a special event T-shirt. All participants receive snacks, water, and a timing chip to track their progress, plus Saturday admission to AirVenture - featuring the widely popular Night Air Show and Daher-Socata Fireworks, country star Aaron Tippin in concert, and an expanded afternoon air show highlighted by the "Warbirds Extravaganza."
Participants can pre-register here now through Thursday, July 28, for $25, by calling 800-236-1025, or at the EAA Welcome Center during AirVenture. Registration on the day of the event is $35, and those with an AirVenture wristband valid for July 30 receive a $5 discount.
Advance purchase admission tickets at a discounted rate as well as camping for all dates are now available here.
