Ferenc Liszt International operator Budapest Airport is set to organize the ninth edition of Runway Run, its charity run, on September 18, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.
The event will be held in support of the SUHANJ! Foundation and the Anthony Nolan Foundation.
Just as in the past years the race will be hosted on the closed Runway I at Ferenc Liszt International Airport, where human strength and perseverance will take center stage for half a day, instead of arriving and departing flights. Runners from the world of aviation, teams from various companies, and athletes from the SUHANJ! Foundation are invited to the event. Additionally, Budapest Airport will draw entry for 50 pairs in a prize competition, whereby another 100 people will be able to participate.
Budapest Airport says that it will pay special attention to health measures and regulations, setting up more registration tables in the interest of social distancing and providing hand sanitizers at several locations. The company will also increase the frequency of cleaning prior to and during the run.
“Nine years ago, when we launched the Runway Run series, we linked an important social cause with sport. Every year we welcome hundreds of participants on our “running track”; aviation professionals, athletes and tourism stakeholders. We are proud that over the past eight years, we have supported treatment for children with blood cancer and sporting opportunities for disabled people with a total of nearly HUF 70 million. Our local communities are a key partner and we are excited to once again give back to the community," Chris Dinsdale, the CEO of Budapest Airport shared his thoughts.
