Fly baby fly!  Run onto the runway at Lehigh Valley International Airport for the Pediatric Cancer Foundation of the Lehigh Valley (!  Competitors at last year's inaugural race said this was an amazing event and were thrilled by multiple heavy jets landing on another runway adjacent to the course during the race.  Part of this course includes the taxiway and an actual runway.  It's a unique opportunity to run on a massive runway (legally!) that is used by the big commercial jets.  

This 5K Run/Walk has a 60 minute time limit - plenty of time for walkers.  The race is organized by the Lehigh Valley International Airport to raise money for the support of families whose children are battling pediatric cancer.
