Welcome to the 7th edition of the YSJ 10k & 5K race on the Runway at Saint John Airport on Saturday 17 June 2017. We are proud to be the original Maritime Airport race and we are excited to work with our colleagues at Saint John Airport in the build up to the race. This year we will be holding the race on the same day as the Airport Community Day.
In 2017 the Saint John Airport race is proud to partner with the Undie Run for a very unique event. Let us see your UNDIES… on June 17, put them on the outside where we can all see them and help put cancer down there out in the open. This event is to help bring awareness to cancers down there, particularly colon cancer and cervical cancer. These very serious diseases need to be discussed and we all need to join the fight. Did you know running and walking on a regular basis reduces the risk for many cancers, especially colon cancer. Show you care about Cancer Down There! Brought to you by the Saint John Airport, The Brighten Group and Fundy Sports and Tourism.

Please note that parents will not be able to run with their children during the Kids Fun Run. The kids must be self sufficient. We will have volunteers and airport personnel on the runway to ensure that the kids are safe and complete the course. All kids will receive a finishers medal.

All timings are subject to flights schedules. Entries must not be sold on without the prior consent of the Race Director.
I will be sending our lots of info before the race but we need to remind everyone that this is a live airport and in the event of flight delays we will reduce the 10k to a 5k race.
Subject to flight timings we may have to impose a time limit on the races. I will update everyone should this info be updated. No refunds will be issued for shortened races.
Identification GOVERNMENT ISSUED ID MUST BE SHOWN ON RACE DAY FOR SECURITY PURPOSES. NO ID = NO RACE, SORRY.

2013 Runner Comments
“U had medals this year! I can’t believe it!!! LOVE THEM! U really out did yourself – cutest bling ever!! Looks fabulous next to my Disney medals and my collection. Thank you so very much! And again, loved your event! So supportive, well organized and excellent volunteers and post race snacks. Thanks so much for the awesome race.”
“I feel sorry for those who were not able to get into last night’s Saint John Airport run, because in addition to the unique opportunity to run a 10k race on an airport tarmac, it was SO cool last night to run at dusk with the runway lights coming on. But then, with a race like that, there has to be a cut-off for entries. It was a wonderful experience, thanks to Garth Millar and his volunteers and sponsors. Can’t WAIT for next year’s run!”
“I just wanted to thank you and Helena for putting on such a great event last night. It was my first airport run, as I only took up running last year. It was a great time, and I love the finishers medal. Hopefully I’ll see you at the Hampton duathlon, and if not I’ll see you in St. Andrews”.
