Get ready to take off for Arizona’s original runway race!
This year marks the Sixth Annual Run the Runway and our race promises to be even bigger and better than years past. Grab your friends and your sneakers to join us for a one-of-a-kind morning run to benefit Playworks Arizona. Together, we can end schoolyard bullying.
Participants will take in the beautiful views from the Scottsdale Airport* runway and then prepare for landing into our post-race festival that can’t be beat. Create memories at our Run the Runway photo booth, collect samples and goodies from top-notch vendors, dance like no one is watching with the Be Kind Dance Crew, and sneak a selfie with team mascots from around the valley!
* Please note the event location change. Due to airport remodeling, the main event and festival area will be located at Scottsdale Park and Ride (13665 N. Scottsdale Rd., Scottsdale, AZ 85254). For more event details visit: www.runtherunwayaz.com.
