    JFK Runway Run 5k (4/13)

    http://www.jfkrunwayrun.org/

    Sunday, April 13, 2008 (registration/check-in starts at 7:30am, race at 9am)

    I did this last year, and I'll definitely be doing it again this year. I mean, what self-respecting aviation geek runner could resist a 5k on a runway at JFK?

    31L/13R I think. They say it's on JFK's longest runway, and that'd fit the bill.

    I'd like to do this this year. Maybe I can get a team together.

    Do you have to run?

    EDIT: I just looked at the flyer on the site. If anyone else is wondering, walking is allowed. I can't run for my life!

    ouch. Gordon, you gonna take that smackdown?!

    Well I don't like running but have a blast and be sure to bend down and kiss the runway. Would love to see a picture of that :)
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.

    I'll be there again. I've run the past two years and it's always a lot of fun. (Except in 2006 when it was hailing and there was a 35mph headwind!)

    Yes your's truly was there running around the runways...well not the runway run but the active runways. My friend had to work Sat night into Sunday for the run. Here's a couple of shots from the Runway Run. We went up and down the crowd looking for some of you guys but didn't see anyone.


    The pact leader who won the race or run or w/e it is. BTW what does the winner get?

    I was there. Unfortunately I had to drop out of the Run about a mile in due to injury. I was taken by Port Authority back to the Finish Line.

    It was a lot of fun though and i will be back next year.

    I was there this morning. I met up with NYCA's "other Phil" for the bus ride there and back. Tommy, I'm surprised you didn't see me, I was the guy with the NYCAviation.com T-shirt on. All in all it was a good race. I ended up placing second in my age group (30-34) with a time of 22:27. Hope to see more of you guys there next year.
