The Charity run on the runway of Budapest Airport!
Venue: Budapest Airport
Website: Official Website
Fee: 60€ (early bird 35€)The BUD:runway run is a charity run held on the runway of Budapest Airport. The fact that you are running where usually planes take off and land alone is already motivation enough but knowing that all this is for a good cause makes it even more interesting.You can chose between a 5km or a 10km run which costs 30€ if booked before July 1st or 50€ if booked after July 1st. All entry fees are donated to cancer charities, and other child-focussed good causes!
Here is what the organizer anna.aero writes about the event:
Runway 3.0 announced! Enter "the race to find the fastest airline in the world", Budapest Airport Runway 13R-31L, 5 September 2015
The air transport industry's annual "Race to Find The Fastest Airline In The World" will take place at 11.00 on Saturday 5 September 2015 on Budapest Airport's 13R-31L when runners from airlines, airports and enterprises across the aviation community once again compete for a series of anna.aero-Budapest Airport "Golden Cake Trophies", including the key team prize of the "The Fastest Airline in the World."
Aer Lingus is the airline to beat
There are two race distances – 10km (four runway lengths) and 5km (a distance favoured by sofa-loving revenue management executives). Aer Lingus is the airline to beat after it swept to victory this year, winning both the top team prize as well fielding the fastest runner, Robert Murphy, an Aer Lingus Fleet Cost Manager, who led from the start to beat all other 609 competitors and take the prize of "Fastest Aviator" in a blistering 10k time of 34.16.
All entry fees – just €30 before July 2015 – are donated to cancer charities, and other child-focussed good causes and every finisher receives "The Bron's Medal" named for Brontë "Bron" Hogan, the anna.aero publisher's 12-year-old daughter, who passed away in 2011 after a five-year battle with leukaemia.
A very good event in Budapest that you as a passionate runner should not miss in 2015! Sign up here: http://www.anna.aero/budrunwayrun/
