The leading sporting-charity event for the global aviation industry attracted 976 air transport industry runners last year. For the fifth consecutive year, Budapest Airport will close one of its two runways for four hours so runners drawn from airlines, airports and enterprises across the aviation community can once again compete for a series of Airport “Golden Cake Trophies”.

A reminder of the details…
