Fly baby fly! Run onto the runway at Lehigh Valley International Airport for the American Cancer Society!
This 5K Run/Walk has a 60 minute time limit - plenty of time for walkers. Part of the course includes the taxiway and runway. It's a unique opportunity to run on a massive runway (legally!) that is used by the big commercial jets. The race is organized by the Lehigh Valley International Airport's Community Engagement department to raise money for the American Cancer Society.
