Air Search Runway Run 2023
Channel Islands Air Search
Islanders will once again have an opportunity of running on Guernsey Airport’s runway later this year. The third Channel Islands Air Search Runway Run, sponsored by BDO Guernsey, is due to take place after 9.00 p.m. on Saturday, 2nd September and will allow runners to experience the novelty and excitement of this fun event, whilst also helping raise money for the voluntary local life-saving search and rescue charity.
This year’s event hopes to build on the success of the Air Search Runway Runs held in 2021 and 2022. The Run will continue as a 5 km course over the runway and taxiways, however, it will be a ‘fun run’ rather than a competitive, timed event.
The number of places available is strictly limited to 500 participants, and prospective runners can secure their spot at a cost of £25 per person, including a special commemorative t-shirt to be worn on the night.
Enrolment for the event is now open, and is online via RaceNation - https://race-nation.co.uk/register/channel-islands-air-search-runway-run/channel-islands-air-search-runway-run-2023 .
Runners are reminded that, as official photographic identification will be required on the night, names should be entered as they appear on the relevant ID when registering.
Further information may be found on the dedicated ‘Air Search Runway Run’ Facebook page. Runners are also being encouraged to raise sponsorship, which will be facilitated through Race Nation’s SportsGiving service.
