Budapest Airport: Ninth Runway Run is on!

 

  • By adapting race conditions, and meeting safety and security regulations, the airport will once again host the unique run.
  • This year’s air transport industry charity-sportive event will take place on Saturday 18 September 2021 on Budapest Airport’s 13R-31L runway.
  • Proceeds from this year’s run will be shared between Hungarian disability group SUHANJ! Foundation and international blood cancer charity, Anthony Nolan.

Following recognition as Anthony Nolan’s Organizational Fundraiser of the Year, Budapest Airport and anna.aero have confirmed this year’s air transport industry charity-sportive event will take place on Saturday 18 September 2021 on Budapest Airport’s 13R-31L runway.

Having raised a cumulative €220,000 for charity since 2013, the proceeds of this year’s run will be shared between Hungarian disability group SUHANJ! Foundation and international blood cancer charity, Anthony Nolan. With all entry fees donated to the chosen charities, runners from airlines, airports and enterprises across the aviation community are invited to join teams from various prestigious companies and athletes from the SUHANJ! Foundation, in the race which will comprise of two running distances – 10km (four runway lengths) and 5km.

Chris Dinsdale, CEO, Budapest Airport comments: “In addition to running together in a unique environment, on an airport runway, participants will also support several good causes. We at Budapest Airport believe that social responsibility is important, so it is a great pleasure for us to join forces for the aims represented by the SUHANJ! Foundation and Anthony Nolan, for the ninth year in a row.”

Despite the difficulties the pandemic has raised for all in the aviation community and societies worldwide, Budapest Airport’s key priority is to continue to support noble causes, even more so during testing times. By adapting race conditions, and meeting safety and security regulations, the airport will once again host the unique run as the only major, and totally-connected, European airport able to commit to the closure of a runway in daylight hours on a Saturday.

“In the face of immense struggles for all, Budapest Airport maintained this great tradition last year and raised almost €20,000 thanks to the participation of nearly 600 runners. We see it as a crucial role to continue our fundraising and look forward to welcoming all our loyal supporters, as well as new runners, to our annual run this year,” adds Dinsdale.


Budapest Airport will also be holding a competition to allow another lucky 100 runners to take part in the race through a prize draw which will be announced on the airport’s social media at a later date.
