The Commemorative Air Force Dixie Wing and Atlanta Regional Airport (Falcon Field) in Peachtree City, Ga., will launch the area’s newest fun run at 8 a.m. April 22, 2017. The inaugural “Keep ‘em Flying” 10k/5k run and one-mile fun run-walk will be on and around the airport and CAF museum grounds. Participants will run next to vintage WWII warbirds, corporate jets and general aviation aircraft. Proceeds from the event will help fund educational out-reach programs at the CAF Dixie Wing, and a new children’s playground at the Atlanta Regional Airport.
“This unique road race venue will provide runners with an exciting new option to challenge themselves while supporting educational and community efforts,” said Dixie Wing Leader Jay Bess.
“This is an opportunity to fund a much-needed children’s playground at Atlanta Regional Airport,” said Airport Director Hope Macaluso. “We also look forward to hosting all of the runners and offering them a chance to get more acquainted with the airport environment right here in Peachtree City.”
