Oct. 19, 2017 will mark Dallas Love Field’s 100th anniversary. To commemorate this milestone, Love Field Airport will host a yearlong celebration filled the activities, exhibits and events starting in fall 2016 with the “Run on the Runway” 5K at their sister airport, Dallas Executive.
This will be one of the most unique racing experiences of your life as you run/walk through a course filled with World War II themed aircraft including a B-29 Superfortress, P-51C Mustang, P5-1D Mustang, SB2C Helldiver, B-24 Liberator, A-26 Invader and many other transport, liaison and trainer airplanes. And to top it all off this historic and scenic course will allow you to run on the runway…talk about flat and fast!
Plus your race registration will include an entry into the Commemorative Air Force Wings Over Dallas WWII Air Show presented by Frost Bank, which will feature a full scale battle reenactment of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor using aircraft, pyrotechnics and much more! You can even book a flight on a vintage WWII plane! To learn more about the Commemorative Air Force and the Wings over Dallas Airshow, please visit www.commemorativeairforce.org.
