Atlanta (CBS46) — Runners had a unique opportunity this morning. This is your chance to drive on the runway at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta.

The annual Mayor’s 5K On the 5th Runway was hosted by Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms.

About 2,000 people registered for this event, but were canceled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Revenues from the run (and walking) will go to the Mayor’s Youth Scholarship Program and the United Way of Greater Atlanta.

The race began at 6:30 am and all participants had to leave the runway by 7:30 am so that the airport could resume preparing for the flight to land.
