The 25th Annual Museum of Aviation Foundation Marathon, Half-Marathon and 5K Run/Walk will be held at the Museum of Aviation on Saturday, February 13, 2021. The races are sponsored by the Museum of Aviation Foundation and the Robins Pacers Running/Walking Club. The three races to be run on Robins Air Force Base next to the Museum of Aviation are part of the 2021 Run & See Georgia Grand Prix Series. The marathon course is USA Track and Field certified (Boston Marathon qualifier). The half marathon is also USA Track and Field certified. Proceeds from the growing annual event benefit the Museum of Aviation, one of the largest education-focused aviation museums in the country.
This is a great way to start the new year with a run on a brisk winter morning. Trophies are awarded to the overall top three male and female finishers in each race, the overall top three male and female masters in each race, the top active duty military male and female in the marathon and the top three finishers in age categories. Six-person relay teams may also enter the Marathon.
All participants receive a colorful shirt. Those who register by January 30 will receive their shirt on race day. All Runners will receive a finisher’s medal.
This year we will also be offering a virtual option for those who want to participate in the 25th annual event but not ready for an in-person event. All participants will receive a tshirt, medal and race packet. Shirts, medals and packets can be picked up Feb. 12th between 2:00 and 4:00 p.m. at the Museum or they will be mailed. Please make sure your address is current in your Runsignup account – shirts will be mailed to this address if not pickup. Please do not opt out of receiving emails from this race because important information will be sent out prior to the start of the event.
Event details and schedule:
In an effort to maintain social distancing and space out the start of the race we will have a rolling start beginning with hand cyclist at 7:50. All other distances will start rolling immediately after the last hand cyclist. Please arrive early as you will be corralled with your registered race distance and started accordingly. Awards for this year’s event be scored on chip time. .
Because the races are run on Robins Air Force Base, all runners are REQUIRED to show a valid ID when picking up race packets. “By providing information required for sign up, you acknowledge and agree to the use of your information for a Criminal Background Check to verify your identity, in accordance with United States Air Force Instruction 31-118, Installation Access and Control, and Robins Air Force Base Instruction 31-101, Installation Defense Plan.”
