Memorial Run the Runway 5K

2021 Date to be announced soon

The annual 5K RUN THE RUNWAY Memorial Run is held in honor of Frank de León Comprés, a USU aviation student who tragically passed away from an accident in his aircraft. His smile was contagious and his family wished to have a remembrance in his name. This event will bring together hundreds of runners and walkers on an actual runway to raise scholarship funds to help other students like Frank pursue their dreams of becoming pilots. Top male and female runners will receive a flight in an aircraft, and other prizes will be raffled off to participants.
