COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN) -- Have you ever wanted to run on an airport runway?

Runners will get the chance to do that at a first-of-its-kind runway 5K run and walk at John Glenn Columbus International Airport on Sunday, Oct. 29.

Registration for the run/walk is now open with proceeds going to Honor Flight Columbus. The non-profit provides senior veterans with a day in the nation’s capital to visit the memorials built in their honor.

The 5K will be held on the airport’s north runway, providing participants a chance to view aircraft landing and departing from the south runway.

Registration is limited to 750 participants.
