​2nd Annual Susan Baer Memorial 5K “Run the Runway”

The Newark International Airport Managers Council (NIAMCO), with the coordination and support of the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey (PANYNJ), is proud to announce the 2nd Annual Susan Baer 5K at Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR). Susan (“Sue”) Baer, an aviation pioneer, former General Manager, leader, friend and mentor at EWR is NIAMCO’s inspiration to hold this event. The cooperation and coordination with the PANYNJ was essential and embraced the challenge.

Join us as you can earn bragging rights by running a runway at one of the busiest airports in the United States. The course will take you on Runway 11/29, the east west runway at EWR, and adjacent taxiways. Feel the thrill of running while watching aircraft take off and land with the NYC skyline as a backdrop. The course is USATF Certified and recognized by the RRCA.
