The Dulles Day 5k/10k on the Runway is back for 2019! Celebrating 6 Amazing years running on the Runway!

Join the Dulles Community on Saturday, September 14, for the best running experience in the area by running a 5k or 10k on one of the runways at Dulles Airport!  

This is your opportunity for the flattest, fastest course in the area. The full length portion of the runway will be closed off for runners to experience a flat, fast course and a unique look at the airport grounds, something you do not get to do every day! Run past planes and along the actual landing strip on this certified looped course.

All race proceeds will benefit Special Olympics Virginia, the Committee for Dulles Community Outreach, and the Washington Airports Task Force, all 501c3 nonprofit organizations closely affiliated with Dulles Airport.  

Course: The event will feature both a 5k and a 10k. The 10k will run the entire length of the runway! Both races are flat and fast.


All runners must be able to complete the chosen course and be off the airstrip by 9:00 am, so that the runway can be reopened for aircraft traffic. 

Only registered runners will be allowed on the race course. Spectators will be allowed at start/finish line area!

There will be water stations available along the course.

Registration Fee: Sign up early! There is a limit of 2,500 runners for this event and we expect it to sell out again this year.
