Run to the Moon celebrates 3 milestones this year: 20th Anniversary of the race, 50th Anniversary of the Armstrong Air & Space Museum and the 53rd Anniversary of Apollo 11.  

Featured guests include Astronauts from Shuttle Missions and back for a second year are the Frogmen that pulled out Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins out of the Apollo 11 capsule after splashdown back in 1969.  That event made history around the world and we are sharing with you the first people that came in contact with the astronauts after they came back from the moon on that historic day!

The Astronauts and Frogmen will be available for Meet & Greets.  Autograph Sessions  and speaking engagements will be offered at the museum.  Check the Museum schedule for times. 

This event starts and finishes at the Armstrong Air and Space Museum in Wapakoneta OH, the Birthplace of Neil Armstrong.  The race is a run/walk and has many unique features including:  Space Themed Music,  Space Facts along the courses, Moon Pies, and tours of the Museum.  Don't miss out on this amazing and educational experience!
