It's the 27th Anniversary of the Air Force Marathon!
Registration opens on November 28th, 2022
Come and be a part of history! The Air Force Marathon is an annual endurance event held the third Saturday of September at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio. First held in 1997 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Air Force, the 2023 Air Force Marathon will feature three aircraft: the MH-139 Grey Wolf, UH-1N Huey, and HH-60W Jolly Green II.
Race weekend features five event distances: a marathon, half marathon, 10K, 5K, and Tailwind Trot 1K Kids’ Run. Additional events include a three-person marathon relay and two Fly! Fight! Win! Challenge Series where runners can earn a fourth medal after completing the 5K, 10K, and half marathon or marathon in one weekend. Other exciting events include our two-day Health & Fitness Expo, Gourmet Pasta Dinner, Finish Line Festival, and After Party.
Our Boston Qualifying marathon course is rife with historic aviation sites and finishes at the National Museum of the United States Air Force, taking runners not only on a journey of 26.2 miles but one of over 110 years in military airpower history. We look forward to seeing you at the start line!
