Midnight charity Runway Run set to return in June 2019

On Saturday 22 June at midnight into Sunday 23 June, 400 runners will take on the Runway Run challenge, equating to a distance of 3.5km.

Two charities are to benefit from this year’s fundraising - Befriend a Child and Veterans with Dogs.

Steve Szalay, Aberdeen International Airport Managing Director said: “Last year’s event was a huge success. We thoroughly enjoyed welcoming more than 250 runners to our runway.

“This year, participants will have the opportunity to run in the height of summer just after the longest day. We’d encourage runners of all abilities to apply for a space in the most exclusive running event in the region.

“We’re delighted to open up our runway to our runners once more and look forward to working in partnership with CHC Helicopter to raise essential funds for two worthy causes.”

Mark Abbey, CHC Helicopter Regional Director, Europe, Middle East, Africa (EMEA) said: “Building on the success of last year’s race, we’re delighted to be able to support the Runway Run and raise much needed funds for local charities.”

Tickets will be £25 with a target sponsorship of £100 per participant. Participants of all running abilities are welcome, with available to purchase from Monday 4th March at 6.00pm from the official Runway Run website www.aberdeenrunwayrun.co.uk
