Nearly 2,000 runners took off this morning at O’Hare for the Athens Sister City Shuffle 5K run on O’Hare’s newest runway: 9L/27R. It was a bit warm, but most were there for the highlight of being able to run or walk on a runway.

Proceeds from the run benefit the Athens Sister City “The Runners” sculpture project, which is raising money to place a sculpture outside of Terminal 5. The run was the kick-off event for “Community Day Celebration,” sponsored by the O’Hare Modernization Program.
