Budapest Airport-anna.aero Runway Run 8.0: “The Race to Find the Fastest Airline in the World”

Budapest Airport Runway 13R-31L, Saturday 19 September 2020

Budapest Airport and anna.aero will host the annual “Race to Find the Fastest Airline in the World (and the fastest airport, and the fastest runner, and the fastest everything else!)” on Budapest Airport’s Runway 13R-31L, Saturday 19 September 2020.

If you’re in the aviation family – be it an airline, an airport or part of the many, many enterprises across the aviation community, we are once again inviting you all to take part in the annual air transport industry’s premier 10km charity-sportive event – “The Race to Find the Fastest Airline in the World”.

Record-breaking charity donations

There will of course be some adjustments to meet regulations and ensure everyone’s health and safety but one thing will remain is that all entry fees will be donated to charity. Comprising of three races – 10km (four runway lengths), 5km (a distance manageable even by first-time runners) and 1.5km for children (6-15 years old) – the run is open to all individuals and teams (three or more runner) in the aviation community.

More than 1,000 runners lined up on Budapest Airport’s runway for the annual air transport industry’s 10km charity race last year. The Budapest Airport-anna.aero Runway run has raised an overall staggering €250,000 for charity over the last seven years.
