Southampton Airport’s Runway Run

The famous Southampton Airport's Runway Run is bigger and better than ever! Bright and early on Sunday, June 21st before the airport opens for business.The event will be officially timed for the first time, affiliated with British Athletics and open to more people than ever. And with a course this straight, smooth and flat as a pancake, this event is all about the PBs.

It also promises to be tremendous fun, with music and a warm-up. Sustainability is massively important to Southampton Airport, so it will also be a plastic-free event, with water in recycled paper cartons and other sustainable goodies being handed to participants on the way out.

All money raised by the Runway Run will go directly into the Moonbeam Fund, the airport’s brand new community fund which is fully committed to providing financial support to local community groups, organisations and charities to help improve education opportunities, services, wellbeing and the environment within our neighbouring communities. More details will be published on the airport’s website in April.

As it is an operational runway, non-runners won’t be able to access the course but an extra special viewing area will be available on the top floor of the adjacent car park so they don’t miss out on any of the action. There will also be special discounted deals on breakfast inside the airport terminal’s Globe Restaurant and free parking for all those taking part. Details to follow.
