Time to Takeoff and Run the Runway @ CCIA
CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – On Saturday, November 23, 2019, Corpus Christi International Airport (CCIA) will welcome the community out to Run the Runway. Participants will get to experience CCIA in a unique way. The 5K is a competitive, chipped run for both experienced and not so experienced runners and walkers. Prior to the start of the 5K, the Patriot Guard Riders will “ride” the runway beginning at 7:35am. Immediately following the ride, kids will be lined up for a quick 1K. The 5K will begin promptly at 8am.
All money raised through registration and sponsorships will benefit USO South Texas. The USO is an organization dedicated to helping the men and women who are currently serving our nation. From free lunches on base to family events and entertainment – the USO is the force behind the forces.
