SUN ‘n RUN 5K – During the SUN ‘n FUN Aerospace Expo

Join us for a road race at Lakeland Linder International Airport (LAL) during the 47th Annual SUN ‘n FUN Aerospace Expo on Saturday, April 17th at 7AM.  The race will begin on the Terminal Ramp as the start line is flanked by the U.S. Navy Blue Angels. During the run you will be able to witness the launching of over twenty (20) hot air balloons as the course winds its way down the Runway 5/23, Taxiway A, and across various other connecting taxiways and ramps to the finish line.

Come join us for one of the most unique 5K race courses in Florida! Proceeds will go to the Lakeland Aeroclub, a high school flying club that teaches high school and college-age students how to fly and maintain aircraft, as well as the Women in Aviation Lakeland Chapter.
