Enjoy a unique view of the Akron-Canton Airport, from the runway! Join family, friends and fellow aviation-enthusiasts as you watch aircraft depart and arrive from CAK while on the flattest course in the region.

On Saturday, October 10th over 2,500 runners, wheelchair athletes and walkers will take off on to the runway of the Akron-Canton Airport to complete the CAK 5K on the Runway. 100% of the race is run out on the taxiways, runways, and Ohio Air Guard Facility.

The fourth annual CAK 5K on the Runway hosted by the Akron-Canton Airport aims to celebrate the past, present and future of aviation with all proceeds of the race being donated to the MAPS Air Museum and the Autism Society of Greater Akron.

Along the course, participants will pass vintage military aircraft and enter the Ohio National Guard in which they will have the opportunity to shake hands with servicemen and women. After the family-friendly race is complete, participants are welcome to enjoy the MAPS Air Museum for free.
