5K race planned at Stafford Regional Airport

A new five-kilometer race is scheduled next month that will give participants an opportunity to run up and down the runway at Stafford Regional Airport.

The Shannon Experimental Aircraft Association is putting on the “Runway Runaway” race starting at 8 a.m. March 23. The course will take runners up and down the airport’s 5,000-foot runway along with another loop.

Race organizers believe the flat course offers runners a good opportunity to set personal records, as well as a safe venue without any vehicles.

Pohanka Honda of Fredericksburg is the title sponsor, and proceeds benefit the scholarship program run by the Experimental Aircraft Association’s local chapter. Race Timing Unlimited will handle the race’s timing.
