Runners from airlines, airports and enterprises across the aviation community are invited to once again take part in the annual 10km race.

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.
