Race the Runways

Welcome to Race The Runways! 

This event is a MidCoast Triathlon Club event.  The 2019 event will be the 9th year of the race! The Half Marathon is unique and challenging, one of only a few races (that we know of) run on an active airport.  While it’s practically flat, it’s the wind that makes it challenging.  Some years it's been dead calm and in others, we’ve had gusts over 50 mph.  Over 4.5 miles are run directly on the runways.  Don’t worry about aircraft taking off or landing.  We’re in communication with every plane landing or taking off.  We run on the taxiway – tarmac and  INACTIVE runway right next to the active runway.  The MidCoast Triathlon Club (MTC) is a triathlon club who believes in promoting health in our community.  The MTC welcomes swimmers, bikers and runners of all ages and abilities to join our group training events. 

Our goal for the Race The Runways is to hold a quality event for runners and walkers promoting health and fitness in our MidCoast Maine community. Race proceeds support our community.
