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 the 2nd annual 5K on the Runway on June 8th at 3:00PM with the Kids Fun Run starting at 2:45PM. Don't miss out - this year's event will also include an air fair held from 12-5PM complete with planes, pilots, vendors and educational booths! The 5K on the Runway is a race down the runway to raise money for the various projects and agencies that the Eugene Active 20-30 Club supports year after year. These agencies include CASA, Relief Nursery, Pearl Buck, Bags of Love, The Child Center and many more. All of these organizations help children and families in our local community and many of them will have informational booths set up near the runway during and after the event. Please take some time to check them out - someone you know may benefit greatly from the services they provide!
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 promptly at 3:00PM!
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 2:00PM. Please allow enough time to walk/get shuttled down to the runway, pick-up your race packet and prepare to "fly" down the runway! There will be two tables for racers: a table for packet pick-up and a table for day-of registrations. With your registration you will receive a raffle ticket to be automatically entered to win two round-trip tickets, courtesy of the Eugene airport! Any additional raffle tickets can be purchased for $20 each. Cash or check only please.
Entry Fees - Adults: $20 without shirt, $30 with dri-fit shirt, through May 31. Youth (18 and under): $15 without shirt, $25 with dri-fit shirt through May 31. Add $5 to all entry fees on race day.
T-shirts - If you did not register to receive a t-shirt, but wish to purchase one, there will be a table set up with our specially designed “5K on the Runway” t-shirts ($10). Again, cash or check only please.

There will also be other complimentary beverages for you to enjoy, as well as food and drink for sale, so come help support our local vendors - and don't forget your cash! Please feel free to eat, drink and learn more about the Eugene Airport, the Active 20-30 Club and many of our local children's charities who will benefit from your entry into the 5K on the Runway! We expect the festivities to end around 5:00PM.
Additional Info: Please remember to abide by the same security rules you may expect to find at an airport: No Smoking, No Pets, No Glass, and No Weapons - PLEASE! Also, don't forget your I.D.'s if you plan to buy any alcoholic beverages!
