About This Activity

The PTI Run on the Runway 5K/10k will be held on the airport’s 9,000-foot runway. This certified run will benefit Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest North Carolina, Urban Ministry and Open Door Ministries of High Point. All are invited to come out to run/walk the runway. The 5K/10k on the runway provides a smooth and flat surface. The entire race course will provide a close-up view of the airport and surrounding area from the airfield. The course is wheelchair accessible and baby stroller friendly. Given the secure location of this run and for safety reasons, bikes, rollerblades and inline skates will not be allowed. Dogs and other pets are strictly prohibited.

Returning again this year is the untimed 5k walk and Kids Dash (approximately 100 yards). Participants can register for the 5k Walk to Win Against Hunger, which will be an untimed walk/run held on the airport runway at the same time as the 5K/10K run. Participants in the Walk to Win Against Hunger will be asked to create a fundraising page on the website and to recruit as many sponsors as possible. The individual with the highest dollar level of sponsors will win a $200 PTI gift certificate for airfare.
