“We’re going for the hat trick”…Aer Lingus returns to Airbus-sponsored Budapest Airport-anna.aero Runway Run with 12 entrants
Declared the “Fastest Airline in the World”, Aer Lingus proudly raised the team trophy in 2014 and 2016. Having only been knocked off the podium once (by SWISS in 2015) the Irish flag carrier is determined not to let the title slip out of its hands this year. Already entering a team of 12, some of which return for their fourth race and with runners still to enlist, the IAG airline will be back on Budapest Airport’s runway this September looking for a hat trick.

It’s all for charity…
All Budapest Airport-anna.aero Runway Run entry fees – just €30 before 1 July – are entirely donated to international child cancer causes and a Hungarian charity assisting the inclusiveness of handicapped people in sports. Besides 10 air transport industry trophies every finisher receives “The Bron’s Medal” named for Brontë “Bron” Hogan, the anna.aero publisher’s 12-year-old daughter, who passed away in 2011 after a five-year battle with leukaemia.
As most airlines and airports already have major charity commitments, there’s no need for participants to raise big cash sponsorship targets – competitors just have to pay an entrance fee, only €30 per runner, with 100% of this sum donated to the benefiting charities.
