Prepare for takeoff! Join us for a VIRTUAL 5K charity run/walk/bike around Northeast Philadelphia Airport (PNE); the choice is up to you! Hosted by Johnson, Mirmiran, & Thompson (JMT), in partnership with March of Dimes and the City of Philadelphia Division of Aviation, participants will get to experience running virtually on multiple runways and taxiways throughout the airfield. The charity race is a “Fund the Mission” event for the March of Dimes Transportation, Building, & Construction Luncheon, held annually at the PA Convention Center.

Let's switch up our normal routine & take it to the airfield! Check back in the week of the virtual race (October 17-October 23) for a video that will take you along the 5K route! The narrated video for at-home running or stationary bike will simulate an actual race throughout PNE. If you plan to run/walk outside, feel free to watch the video before or after! This event is flexible! Complete your 5K anytime during the week of the virtual race!
