Prior to the race, participants and spectators will gather in Jet Air’s new 40,000 square foot hangar.  Food and beverages will be available.  At 3:30 pm, we will begin encouraging participants to make their way out to the taxiway in front of JetAir where everyone will line up for the start.  Participants will be split into four groups:

  • Preferred start runners
  • General start runners
  • Walkers
  • Participants with strollers*

*Running with strollers is discouraged out of courtesy to other participants.


After crossing the starting line, participants will emerge from the taxiway onto the 150-foot wide main runway at Austin-Straubel Airport.  The first half of the race (1.5 miles) will be on the runway with participants running a straight line for one mile before reaching a turnaround and heading back to a connector road that takes them to the service road on the outer perimeter of the airport grounds.  The service road will loop around before passing through a gauntlet of planes and across the finish line.  The finish chute feeds directly into the post-race “Party in the Hangar” at Jet Air.
