Take Flight 5k

Have you ever been on an airport runway? Well now is your opportunity to sign up for the most unique and flattest run in the Upstate. The 10th Annual Take Flight 5K and 1 mile fun run in the Greenville Downtown Airport's Community Corridor is guaranteed to be one of the best races you will ever run. Everyone is welcome! Walk or run, have fun, run in a costume, compete among companies, or log your best time. The only requirement is that you let your feet take flight on the runway! 


This 5k is a fundraiser for Runway Park in Greenville Downtown Airport’s Community Corridor. All proceeds cover event costs and go towards improvements and maintenance of the park for the community for the year. The park design is STEM based and is meant to inspire the next generation to fall in love with aviation. There are already improvements being put in now from money raised last year.
