PHF 5K on the Runway

Starting 14 Sep 2019, 7:30 am, EDT in Newport News

Join the Newport News/Williamsburg International Airport (PHF) as we celebrate 70 years of commercial air service with our inaugural community wide 5K On The Runway! This race is a unique opportunity to see the airport like you’ve never seen it before; run on airport taxiways and runways for a one of a kind experience. In addition, PHF has selected the Downtown Hampton Child Development Center (DHCDC) as our charitable partner for our first 5K On The Runway. DHCDC is an amazing community partner, who as a private nonprofit with fully licensed facilities, serves children from 6 weeks old to age 5 from tidewater Virginia families of all backgrounds and income levels. Serving Hampton, Newport News, York County, Poquoson and other parts of Hampton Roads, as well as military families from Langley AFB, Ft. Eustis and beyond. DHCDC's mission is "to nurture young children by providing affordable, quality preschool programs that develop the 'whole child' and foster school readiness." We are so excited to be partnering with such a worthwhile organization and community asset. All race proceeds, as well as individual donations will go directly to DHCDC to further their mission. We hope to see you in September!
