DON SCOTT 5K RUNNERS TAKE OVER THE RUNWAY
The Don Scott Trot: A 5K on the Runway on September 30, 2017, gave 175 participants a chance to enjoy a beautiful fall morning on the runway. Adam Wolf, Ohio State Airport operations unit manager, was the first place finisher with
a time of 17.40. He ran the race while pushing his three-year-old son Preston in a stroller. The family friendly 5K included many other parent/strollers teams, as well as a kids’ race that was held for youngsters while their parents ran the 5K.
Proceeds from the registration fee benefit aviation youth education programs at the airport, including YAA and YA3 (Youth Aviation and Aeronautics Adventure).
The 2017 5K t-shirt and medal commemorated the airport's 75th Anniversary with images of Aviator Brutus.
