Man, I'd do that in a heartbeat if I was in the neighborhood. Very cool.

But I wonder which runway it will be? They don't give any hints.

I too wonder. Is ORD constructing runways currently?

The following is a quote from the marketing e-mail they sent out with the link included in the OP.

Quote:
On October 20, O'Hare International Airport's northernmost runway will take a brief rest from handling aircraft and instead welcome thousands of runners and walkers to raise money for a very important cause.

Based on that, I would imagine it is 9L-27R. This makes sense given that it is the most detached from the remainder of the field, so it shouldn't be too difficult to keep the 5K participants away from the active operations.

That also means that they have to close 14L-32R because of the runway safety area. So 2 runways will be affected

I believe they could still use 32L since the displaced threshold on the north end gives approximately 2,000 feet of RSA beyond the end of the runway.

Last thing you want is an airplane going off the end of 32L and into the runners. So I'd imagine that runway will be closed as well.

That was a typo on my part, I was indeed referring to 32R.

I'm certain 14R-32L would remain in use since it doesn't even intersect 9L-27R. I would imagine they'll also avoid using 14L-32R simply to keep all traffic away from the runway being used for the 5K - my point was merely that it would be out of an abundance of caution, and not because of RSA or any other specific reduction in the necessary clearances for 14L-32R.

I got a kick out of the line that says participants must follow strict security procedures because the event will be on an "active runway."

Really?

Now THAT would be a thrilling experience.

I do a run every year at ISP that runs on two of the runways. Can't remember which ones though. I would do this one if I could get there!

I'd imagine they have some kind of barrier up so people just don't wally around all willy-nilly.

KAUS did it once upon a time on 17R. It is a two-strip airport with the 9K' 17L/35R remaining open, so all was not too lost.
It was really foggy out with low visibility, which made it doubly awesome, as people were praying out loud that the a/c not land on the incorrect runway; and on a side note: due to the fog they may have not noticed the unique slope up on the last 2K' of the northern end of 17R, for which it is partially renowned.

I just wish they'd have it again. The waking up ludicrously early and driving clear across town in dense fog was worth it, for obvious reasons!

People would certainly run fast if that was the case. The term "run fast or lose your ass" comes to mind...

4R-22L stopping short of 28. Use the high speed turn-offs to create a loop on Sierra.


It's 737s, 747s and 380s. Not 737's, 747's and 380's. Learn to use the apostrophe for crying out loud.
