Get ready to take off for Arizona’s Original runway race!

This year marks the 6th Annual Run the Runway and our race promises to be even bigger and better than years past. Grab your friends and your sneakers to join us for a one-of-a-kind morning run to benefit Playworks Arizona. Together, we can end schoolyard bullying.

Participants will take in the beautiful views from the Scottsdale Airport runway then prepare for landing into our post-race festival that can’t be beat. Create memories at our Run The Runway photo booth, collect samples and goodies from top-notch vendors, dance like no one is watching with the Be Kind Dance Crew and sneak a selfie with the Arizona sports team mascots!



Run the Runway benefits Playworks Arizona, the only nonprofit organization in the country to send trained, full-time coaches to low-income, urban schools, where they transform recess and play into a positive experience that helps kids and teachers get the most out of every learning opportunity.
