The Davis-Monthan AFB Fitness Center will host the Annual Desert Boneyard 5K Fun Run/Walk 10K run March 1 at 9 a.m.

The course navigates through hundreds of historic military aircraft stored and maintained by the 309th Aircraft Maintenance and Regeneration Group here. The 309th AMARG provides depot-level maintenance, aircraft regeneration, storage and preservation, aircraft parts reclamation and disposal in support of the U.S. Department of Defense, allied war-fighters and other government agencies. AMARG encompasses more than 2,600 acres and provides storage for nearly 4,000 aircraft.

Individuals will be able to run or walk through lanes of aviation history. All participants must remain on the designated track throughout the race, and will need to complete the run/walk no later than noon.

Only registered and pre-paid participants will be granted admission through the AMARG gate which is located off of Kolb and Irvington Rd. The gate will open at 6:30 a.m. for participants.

The deadline to register is Feb. 14.

Children participating under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a legal guardian throughout the entire run/walk. Participants ages 4 and above are required to complete an authorized release of medical liability. Children age 3 and under are free.
