Ever want to run on a runway at O’Hare? Well, this is your opportunity. On Saturday, October 20th the Chicago Department of Aviation and United Airlines are partnering to host a 5K timed run and a 5K fun run/walk.
The website indicates this is on an active runway, which sounds pretty cool to me. After the race there is additional entertainment for the whole family. All the proceeds from this event go to the Wounded Warrior Project, a great organization.
I just signed up for the fun run, this morning. I haven’t done a race at all this year, mostly because of this, so I figured I’d start slow.
I read about an equivalent run at JFK earlier this year and I was pretty excited about the idea. Now this great idea is in my own back yard! I cannot wait. I think this event will sell out, so if you are interested, you should sign up right away. Let me know if you sign up and we can all meet up at ORD.
