Saint John Airport 6k & Duathlon

Saint John Airport 6k & Duathlon Virtual Race

Our 2020 Saint John Airport race was scheduled to be a 6k run on a brand new route around the newly resurfaced runways at the airport but you can still take part in the fun by registering for our Virtual 6k.

WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RACE? A virtual race is a race that can be run (or walked) from any location you choose. You can run, jog, bike or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, on your trainer or on the track. You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself. We will mail your race bib and medal directly to you and you can participate on your own schedule. Here’s how it will work.

1) Register for our Virtual Race – Register Here

2) Close to race date we will mail you your medal and race bib.

3) Choose your location and distance to run/walk/jog/bike. Your 9k, your way!

4) Set a date and run your race!

5) Celebrate your victory! Wear your medal with pride! You’ve earned it!

6) Send us a photo of you completing your virtual race with your medal

We are back for our 9th running of our 6k race at Saint John Airport with a brand new race distance, new route and a new date on Sunday May 24 2020.

We will be offering 3 races on race day, our traditional running race and a Duathlon which will comprise a Sprint Duathlon (5k run – 17k bike – 2.5k run) and a Super Sprint Duathlon (2.5k run – 8.5k bike – 2.5k run).

Running Race – We have a brand new route for 2020 with a section using the service road around the airport before heading onto the newly resurfaced runway back to the Fire Hall for the finish line – a great opportunity to see the airport from a unique perspective.


Our Sprint Duathlon will offer ITU World Slots for the 2021 World Duathlon Championships – 1 slot per age-group, male and female.

Run 1 – out and back using the service roads throughout the airport

Bike – course is entirely on the newly resurfaced and smooth runways of the airport. Potentially the fastest surface you have ever ridden on. 2 full loops for the Sprint Duathlon and 1 full loop for the Super Sprint Du.

Run 2 – out and back on the service roads

2018 Race Comments:

What a great organizing Team, great job guys!! 

Such an awesome event today with a live band, free beer samples, food and great prizes. Awesome day!! 

I had so much fun helping out today at the YSJ 5k! I really enjoyed the day. 

This was my first 5k and a special day.  Thank you for all the work and prep you and your team of volunteers did to make the day a success.

Welcome to the 8th edition of the YSJ 5k race on the Runway at Saint John Airport on Saturday 27 October 2018. We are proud to be the original Maritime Airport race and are excited to work with our colleagues at Saint John Airport in the build up to the race. This year we will be having a Halloween theme and we encourage you to run in your best Halloween costumes/outfits, although its not compulsory. We will have our Kids Fun Run once again, themed for Halloween as The Little Monster Dash.

On behalf of the Saint John Airport 10k, 5k and Kids Fun Run we were thrilled to present Judie Domokos from The Brighten Group with this cheque for $3250.00. A massive thank you to everyone who supported the race with your donations or by racing or volunteering.
