Ireland West Airport are delighted to announce, in partnership with Portwest, the 5th annual charity 5k runway fun run will take place on the runway at Ireland West Airport at 17:00 on Saturday 10th September 2022
This is a unique opportunity to run or walk on our famous runway. All are welcome to attend with all proceeds from the event going to our three nominated charities for 2022, The Childhood Cancer Foundation, The Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust and The Sensational Kids Project.
This year will be a memorable year for the Runway run as the run will take place for the first time on our newly resurfaced runway. As an added incentive this year all who sign up online to take part in the Runway Fun Run will be entered into a draw to win a pair of flights to Palma Majorca with Ryanair.
All participants on the day will receive a free commemorative runway run t-shirt which can be collected at the airport on the day of the event or on a pre-arranged date leading up to the event which will be advised closer to the event time*.
For the first time a 'Virtual option' will also be available for those who wish to support the three charities, but are unable to make it on the day and would like to do a virtual run or walk. Note a charge for postage and packaging will be applicable for those doing the virtual run who wish to receive a t-shirt. Alternatively t-shirts can be collected at the airport closer to the event time at no extra cost.
*Please note as the runway run was originally planned to take place in May 2020 but was postponed due to COVID-19, the runway run t-shirts have the year 2020 on them.
CAR PARKING ON THE DAY WILL BE EXTREMELY LIMITED AND PARTICIPANTS ARE ENCOURAGED TO CAR POOL WITH FRIENDS AND OR FAMILY OR GET DROPPED OFF AT THE AIRPORT.
