(Montgomery, AL) – The Montgomery Regional Airport (MGM) is inviting all runners and walkers to lace up their sneakers for a unique experience allowing registered participants to run a 5K on the MGM Runway. The inaugural MGM Runway 5K will occur on October 22, beginning at 8:30 a.m., and registration is now open.

“We look forward to hosting our first annual 5K Runway Run as this is an exciting event for MGM and the community,” said Wade A. Davis, C.M. Executive Director of Montgomery Regional Airport. “We are allowing the Montgomery and Tri-County community a chance to experience our airport and airport grounds like never before, and we are thrilled to host this history-making experience.”

The race will begin near the (southwest) side of the Airport’s general aviation runway, wrapping by Runway 3-21 and looping by aircraft static displays.

Participants are encouraged to sign up early as limited space will cap at 500 participants. Early registration is $40 per participant through October 1, and $45 after the registration day will be available but will be limited. Participants will receive an MGM 5k race shirt (to be worn on race day), bib, MGM water bottle, clear backpack, and a finishers medal. Children 14 and under must be accompanied by a registered adult.
