Ever wanted to go for a jog out on the airport tarmac? Here's your chance! The Toronto Pearson Runway Run gives you the opportunity to run a 5k or walk 2k route right on the airport runway! Perhaps the neatest thing about this event is that it's business as usual for Pearson Airport so during the event you'll have up close (but no too close!) and personal views of airplanes taxiing, taking off, and landing.
The event features a 5k running course and 2k walking course. The 5k run is timed and there are awards for top finishers, but most people tend to treat this event as more of a fun run on a unique course.
The Runway Run course is pretty straightfoward. Follow an out and back the runs parallel to the airport landind strip. There's usually no map released in advance because well... it's pretty self explanatory!
