WRIGHT- PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio – There is only one week left until the first Museum Mile. Runners and walkers must register before or on race day May 11, or until entries are filled.

The event honors the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force’s 100th anniversary.

Participants will follow a course winding through the museum grounds before finishing under the wing tips of historic aircraft at the air park.
