A charitable challenge

Cornwall Air Ambulance’s annual Runway Runaround is set to return for 2019!

Cornwall Air Ambulance’s annual 10km run, the Runway Runaround, returns this year on Sunday 3rd November. Following the success of last year’s event, with hundreds of runners taking part and thousands of pounds raised for the charity, this year’s Runway Runaround is set to be bigger than ever!

Every penny raised will go towards the New Heli Appeal…”

This isn’t your everyday 10km route; you’ll be running along and around Newquay Airport’s active runway. Don’t worry though, there won’t be any need to duck! The route will also take you past Cornwall Air Ambulance’s very own helipad, so if you’re looking for a unique run this year, to set yourself a 10km challenge or if you simply want to take part to fundraise for this lifesaving Cornish charity, the Runway Runaround ticks every box.

Every penny raised will go towards the New Heli Appeal target of £2.5M, to bring a bigger and faster helicopter to Cornwall by April 2020. The new helicopter will help the crew to reach more people when they need it most. Many of us know somebody who has been airlifted and you never know who might need it next. Ultimately, by taking part in the Runway Runaround, you’ll be helping to save more time and more lives in the future.

With registration opening on 1st May, make the most of the first month’s Early Bird entry rates, before prices start to increase from June. Entry costs just £15 for non-affiliated runners or £13 for affiliated runners during May, with no mandatory fundraising requirements.
