Budapest Airport-anna.aero Runway Run 6.0: “The Race to Find the Fastest Airline in the World”

Budapest Airport Runway 13R-31L, Saturday 1 September 2018: Budapest Airport and anna.aero have confirmed the sixth air transport industry’s premier charity-sportive event – “The Race to Find the Fastest Airline in the World” – will take place at 11:00 on Saturday 1 September 2018 on Budapest Airport’s 13R-31L. Runners from airlines, airports and enterprises across the aviation community are invited to once again take part in the annual 10k race.

September 2017: More than 1,000 runners lined up on Budapest Airport’s runway for the annual air transport industry’s 10km charity race, sponsored by Airbus and Qatar Airways, all competing for a series of anna.aero-Budapest Airport "Golden Cake Trophies" including the key team prize of the “The Fastest Airline in the World.”

All for charity

Since its beginnings the Budapest Airport-anna.aero Runway Run has raised an incredible €130,000 for charity. Last year alone, the run, which was held again in aid of the bone marrow transplant charity, Anthony Nolan, and Hungary’s Suhanj! Foundation, a charity which supports the inclusion of disabled people in sport, raised a record €39,500.

All entry fees – just €35 before July 2018 – are donated to charity. Comprising of three races – 10km (four runway lengths), 5km (a distance manageable even by first-time runners) and 1km for children (6-15 years old) – the run is open to all individuals and teams in the aviation community, followed by a superb barbecue on the terrace of Budapest Airport’s historic former Terminal 1 overlooking the re-opened runway.
