Races & Runs

FlyBy 5K and 2-Mile Fun Run/Walk presented by CNX Resources

Race the runway with your whole family at the FlyBy 5K and 2-Mile Fun Run/Walk presented by CNX Resources. This unique course lets participants run through the airfield and taxiways of Pittsburgh International Airport, taking them past aircraft parked along the runway and showing them a side of the airport few get to see. Claim your spot on the runway today!

This family-friendly race makes it possible for everyone to race the runways and earn their wings! There are two options to participate: the 5K (a timed 3.1-mile course) and the 2-Mile Fun Run/Walk (untimed), so there's something for everyone. Both courses are stroller-friendly, and children younger than 4 years old can register for free.* 

*Children aged four or younger on race day can register at no charge; however, due to FAA requirements for who can be on the property, these children must be officially registered for the event and wear their assigned race bib to identify them as event participants.

Everyone at the Allegheny County Airport Authority and P3R is thrilled to welcome runners and walkers back to the in-person FlyBy 5K and 2-Mile Fun Run/Walk presented by CNX Resources on October 2, 2021.

In light of Covid-19, we do need to take some serious safety precautions in order to host the event in person. We are grateful for your patience and understanding.

  • Throughout the event:
    • All event staff and volunteers will be fully vaccinated against Covid and will wear masks throughout the event.
    • Hand sanitizer stations will be strategically located throughout all event areas.
    • Masks and social distancing are highly encouraged for all participants.
    • If you are exhibiting any Covid symptoms, including but not limited to fatigue, fever, or cough, please do NOT come to the event. 
  • Packet pick up:
    • Friday, October 1, from 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. at Fleet Feet:
    • Saturday, October 2, from 8:30 a.m. through the start of the race
    • Masks and social distancing are highly encouraged.
    • One person can pick up race packets for multiple runners.
  • On the shuttle from parking to the event:
    • Under the TSA order, masks are required while riding transportation provided by the airport and/or on airport property
  • In the start/finish line area:
    • Masks and social distancing are highly encouraged.
    • There is plenty of space in the start and finish line area to socially distance.
    • Finisher times and all time-based awards will be based on chip time (when you officially cross the start and finish line), so there is no reason to crowd together at the start line.

We are continuing to work with our expert medical partners regarding the safety measures we will take — the health and safety of everyone who attends the event is our highest priority. As the situation continues to evolve, we will update our plans accordingly, and we will provide regular updates to keep all of you informed. We are all looking forward to a fantastic and safe event on the runways at Pittsburgh International Airport!
