Come and be a part of history! The Air Force Marathon is an annual endurance event held the third Saturday of September at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio. First held in 1997 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Air Force, the Air Force Marathon has grown into a 15,000 participant event, with runners from all fifty states and many foreign countries. Marathon weekend features four event distances, a full marathon, half marathon, 10k and 5K race as well as other exciting events including our Sports and Fitness Expo, Gourmet Pasta Dinner, Breakfast of Champions, Finish Line Festival and After Party. Our Boston Qualifying full marathon course is rife with historic aviation sites and finishes at the National Museum of the United States Air Force, taking runners not just on a journey of 26.2 miles but one of over 110 years in military airpower history.
