Midway Fly Away 5k benefiting Special Olympics Chicago! Join in the fun and run/walk right on the airfield at Chicago Midway International Airport.

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 www.sochicago.org. Our thanks to the City of Chicago, Department of Aviation and Southwest Airlines for their ongoing support!

Race-Day Information: No “wheels”, including strollers, bicycles, tricycles, roller blades, inline skates, will be allowed on the airfield. Free parking will be available for all participants in the Midway Airport Economy Parking lot, located at 5050 West 55th Street. You must be parked no later than 8:30am as the last shuttle to the race starting line will depart by 8:45am. Race volunteers will guide you to the shuttle area. We will have 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.

Prize Details: 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 male and female winners and to the top three male and female finishers in each age group category. We will also be conducting a $10 raffle with awesome prizes. Please remember to remove the “Raffle” ticket from your bib, before you run, and place it in the box on the raffle table. Winners will be posted. The runner/walker who raises the most funds by October 1 will receive a Chicago White Sox Skybox for 20 to be used in April or May of 2018.
