On OHIO’S 180TH FIGHTER WING BASE
The Stinger 5K is an exclusive run/walk at the 180th Fighter Wing, Ohio National Guard, Eugene F. Kranz Toledo Express Airport. This one-of-a-kind event features a route that includes a start/finish near the 9/11 Memorial, runs past the fighter wing parking pads and onto the Stinger tarmac.
