5 Upcoming Airport Runway Runs to try in 2016

What if you could pack your social-conscious attitude with you to the airport?  Giving back at the airport is one of the spots which I had never considered. Until I came across a variety of airport runway runs happening early this year.  If you’ve ever wondered what it might be like to walk or even run along an airport runway — try these during your layover and help a cause.

Land your chance to run the runway at these airports:
