Registration is open! Aer Lingus team captain is first in line for Budapest Airport-anna.aero Runway Run 6.0: “The Race to Find the Fastest Airline in the World”
From the beginning, the Budapest Airport-anna.aero Runway Run has attracted a loyal following, among those top supporters would have to be previous champions Aer Lingus. Returning year-after-year, fitter, stronger and in bigger numbers, the IAG carrier didn’t waste a moment in signing up to this year’s competition in the hope of reclaiming the coveted title of “The Race to Find the Fastest Airline in the World”.
“I was keeping an eye on the anna.aero site and had my finger poised on the mouse, ready to register. I had to be first in this year…the first of a good few more! We’re determined to win,” declares Aer Lingus Revenue Management Analyst and Running Team Captain, Wayne Forde.
Dedicated follower of running
Regular runner Forde, who last weekend proudly took it upon himself to fly the flag for the runway run at the 21km de Blagnac, in Toulouse – has lined up alongside an expanding team of Aer Lingus runners since the first race in 2014. Completing the half marathon in a reasonably decent time of 2:12:06, Forde does have a respectable Budapest runway 10km personal best (PB) of 51:07: “In my younger days I did have a 10km PB of 48:12. I keep trying to aim to break that time, and if there’s ever a place to do it, Budapest would be it…given that it’s flat,” enthuses Forde.
Think you could be a challenge for Forde and his team, or any of the current trophy holders and run off with a title such as ‘Fastest Aviation Enterprise’ or ‘Fastest 10km Runner’? Or maybe you just want to be part of the unique experience of running down the runway in the awesomely beautiful city of Budapest then register now!
