Dulles Day Plane Pull/Credit: Special OlympicsThe annual Plane Pull for charity returns to the Dulles Day Family Festival Sept. 20, so now is the time to gather your friends and co-workers to see if you can move the 164,000-lb. Airbus.

The annual event, which will benefit Special Olympics, pits teams of 25 against the plane. Teams must raise a minimum of $1,500 to participate.

Here is what you need to know:

Prizes will also be awarded to the teams who raise the most money, teams who show the most enthusiasm, the lightest and the heaviest teams, and even the slowest team.

Kids  can get involved and play for bragging rights. The Kids Truck Pull will provide a fun challenge for teams of eight, who will try and pull a 123JUNK truck 12 feet. To participate, you must raise or donate a minimum of $10/person.

All participants will receive a Plane Pull T-shirt

Prior to the Plane Pull, runners, walkers and stroller pushers can participate in the 5K/10K on the Runway. The Dulles Airport Runway will be closed off to airport traffic so participants can run past planes and along the actual landing strip. This popular event is limited to 2,500 runners. The cost for the 5K is $35 until Sept. 17, space permitting.

The Dulles Day Family Festival, sponsored by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority and Software AG, willalso feature live music, a car show, military and civilian aircraft displays, police K-9 demonstrations, business exhibits, and a Kids Zone. There is no charge to enter the festival, although donations are appreciated.
