Hydro-seeding at disturbed earth areas and minor finish work will continue through next week but will not involve disruptions to aircraft activities.

Saturday's inaugural Run the Runway event was a great success! It was a picture perfect Sierra fall weather day and almost 200 joined in on the fun! Participants had the option of either a 5K or a 3/4 mile run right on the actual 11-29 runway at Truckee Airport, at elevation 5,900 feet, The airport had the runway closed to air traffic during this unique event. Funds raised will help support 3 local non-profits: TEMPO High School Music Programs, Auburn Ski Club Training Center and Trails & Vistas. Thanks to all those that participated and if you missed this year's event, stayed tuned for the even bigger and better 2017 Run The Runway at your Truckee Tahoe Airport!
