Budapest Airport-anna.aero Runway Run 6.0: “The Race to Find the Fastest Airline in the World”
SAVE THE DATE: 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 10km race.
Since its beginnings the Budapest Airport-anna.aero Runway Run has raised an incredible €110,000 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.
More than 1,000 runners entered the Budapest Airport-anna.aero Runway Run 2017, which was generously sponsored and supported by Airbus and Qatar Airways. Due to the obvious security reasons an airport encounters when closing an active runway for such an event, there is a maximum number of runners allowed to enter, so don’t miss your chance to be part of this year’s race.
Watch this space – our registration site will be live soon! If you can’t wait that long and want to secure your place now, e-mail us and we’ll make sure you’re first on the list: firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
