It's the 26th Anniversary of the Air Force Marathon!
Thank you to all of our 2022 race participants and we hope to see you at the 27th Air Force Marathon to be held on September 16, 2023!
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 2022 Air Force Marathon will feature the AC-130J Ghostrider and will also commemorate the 75th anniversary of the United States Air Force!
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, Breakfast of Champions, 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!
