Saturday, August 29th, 2015


The Active 20-30 Club's mission is to provide young adults with an opportunity for personal growth, friendship, and leadership development while improving the quality of life for the special needs of children in our community. Our Club, in partnership with the Eugene Airport, is hosting its 4th annual 5K on the Runway on Saturday, August 29th, 2015.

This years' timed 5K run/walk will be held at 9:30am, paired with a FREE Kids Fun Run beginning shortly before at 9:15am. The event will also include an Air Fair from 8am-1pm complete with live entertainment, local food/beverage vendors, static aircraft displays, informational booths, and a Kids Zone!

Your 5K registration fee will benefit the Eugene Active 20-30 Club and the various projects and agencies that the Club supports each year. These agencies include CASA, Relief Nursery, Pearl Buck, Bags of Love, The Child Center and many more. We invite you to join us in supporting these organizations, while enjoying a day of family-fun on the Eugene Airport Runway!

Parking: Upon arriving at the airport, look for signs (and people!) directing you to the first parking lot on the east side of Northrup Drive. This is the airport's overflow parking lot. You will not be required to enter the terminal or go through security. To access the runway, please use the gate at the rear of the parking lot and be directed to the designated walking path.

*Please note: The overflow parking lot is a little more than 1/4 mile from the runway. Please plan accordingly to allow enough time to get down to the runway to pick up your race packets before the race begins!

Shuttle Service: There will be a shuttle service available for anyone not able/wanting to walk to the runway. It will leave approximately every 5-10 minutes from the overflow parking lot.

5K Registration & Packet Pick-up: As previously mentioned, the runway is more than 1/4 mile from the parking lot. Registration will open at 7:45AM. Please allow enough time to walk/get shuttled down to the runway, pick-up your race packet and prepare to "fly" down the runway!
