Chicago Midway International Airport
5700 S Cicero Ave, Chicago, Illinois 60638
Registration is now open for the 5th Annual Midway Fly Away 5k Run and Walk on Sunday, September 17. Run or walk right on the airfield at this unique 3.1 mile event! Again this year, we have added a race just for kids 10 and under — the Midway Miler!
Registration includes souvenir race t-shirt, post race refreshments and free parking.
Just like last year, the runner who crosses the finish line «midway» will be awarded (2) round-trip Southwest Airlines tickets to fly anywhere in the continental United States. Winner must be at least 18 years of age. Other great raffle prizes will also be awarded and prizes will be presented to the first place winners.
Fun for the whole family so bring your children to enjoy face painters and balloon artists! Souvenir merchandise and refreshments will also be available for purchase.
Free parking will be available for all participants in the Midway Airport Economy Parking lot, located at 5050 West 55th Street.
The event benefits the year round programs enjoyed by 6,800 Special Olympics Chicago athletes. For more information on getting involved and making a difference, visit sochicago.org.
Our thanks to the City of Chicago, Department of Aviation and Southwest Airlines for their ongoing support!
