Budapest Airport-anna.aero Runway Run recruitment run

Bud Run 6.0

Budapest Airport CCO, Kam Jandu, supports anna.aero Publisher, Paul Hogan in the London Marathon, while the dedicated Runway Run team headed to Bilbao on this year’s recruitment drive at Routes Europe. Jandu, the brains behind the Budapest Runway Run, joined the Anthony Nolan Cheering Stations along the route. Anthony Nolan, which arranged two bone marrow transplants for Hogan’s late daughter Brontë, is one of the two benefiting charities of the BUD Runs, receiving some €75,000 since the series began. The “Always Getting Better” Ryanair generously sponsored Hogan €5,000 in London. (Thank you!!!)

The Budapest Airport-anna.aero Runway Run team were busy recruiting runners over the duration of this year’s Routes Europe event in Bilbao; the team have been building recognition and support for the leading sporting charity event for the global aviation industry.

This year’s race – five or 10km – takes place on Budapest Airport’s runway 13R-31L at 11:00 on Saturday 1 September 2018. On this day, 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 anna.aero-Budapest Airport “Golden Cake Trophies”.

Jenna Hart, Aviation Development Analyst, Regional & City Airports is ready to help on the recruitment run. Being more of a natural swimmer than runner, Hart thinks the runway run could be a good starting point to train for the triathlon she’s always wanted to complete.
