JFK Airport Run Summary

Event Overview: The JFK Airport Run is unlike any other benefit race in NYC. Join more than 500 runners in New York at the JFK 5K Run, which travels around this famous NYC airport and gives runners the opportunity to race down its massive runways.

What to Expect: Runners at the JFK race can expect a flat but challenging course, with jets flying overhead throughout this 3.1-mile run. 

  • An Exclusive Look at JFK: Runners at the JFK 5K Run get an exciting, behind-the-scenes look at John F. Kennedy Airport in NYC. Planes coming into JFK are redirected to their other runways exclusively for the JFK Runway Race, making this NYC 5k a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
  • Help Out Local Charities: The JFK Airport Run is the main chairty benefit for the JFK Rotary Club, which helps out a number of local organizations in the NYC area. Feel good knowing your fee to enter the JFK Runway Run will go to good use around NYC.

Inside Knowledge: NYC runners who don't pre-register for the JFK 5k Run can still participate in this popular New York City race. Same-day registration for the JFK Airport Run begins at 7am and ends at 8am, and costs just $25.

Event Hints:

  • Prepare to Go Through Security: What's a trip to the airport without going through security? The JFK Runway Run requires that all participants go through security, so make sure to travel lightly on your way to the JFK 5k Run in NYC.
  • Train Like a Pro: Like many NYC 5k races, the JFK Airport Run attracts some of the best runners in New York City. If you know you want to participate in the JFK 5k Run, we recommend you start training early for this popular New York running race. However, walking participants are also strongly encouraged to register for the JFK Runway Run.

Break a Sweat at the JFK Airport Run

If you're looking to break a sweat for a great cause, you should sign up for the JFK Airport Run.  Since the run is only about 3 miles, people who are in pretty decent shape will be able to keep up.  At this event, you'll be able to meet new people who tend to be in great moods because they're all just enjoying spending their day doing something fun to help other people.  You'll feel great after you complete this run, both physically and mentally.
