Ready - Set - TakeOff!
Here's your chance to experience something very unique. Run the Runway at Corpus Christi International Airport (CCIA) isn't just another 5K. We are putting you in a place few have ever been before. Our race will take place on a commercial runway here at CCIA. The starting line will be on the North GA ramp which gives us plenty of room to stage other kinds of fun for the whole family. The morning will begin with a 1K for the little ones. (Free - but you must register for it) The 5K will follow with a start time of 8am and will take you flying down a taxiway, a runway, and eventually back to the finish line.
