Ireland West Airport Annual 5k Runway Fun Run

30th March 2019 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm Knock, Co. Mayo

Ireland West Airport is delighted to announce that Croí, the Heart & Stroke Charity, Hope House and The Jack and Jill Foundation have been selected by airport staff as its charity partners for 2019.

Join us for the Ireland West Airport annual 5k runway fun run sponsored by Portwest, which will take place on the runway at Ireland West Airport on Saturday March 30th at 5pm.

Runners and walkers will take-off down the runway at 5pm and complete a 5km course with a difference. All are welcome to attend what promises to be fantastic evening for all the family, raising much needed funds for three charities (including Croí) in 2019.

This year will be a particularly memorable year for the runway run as it will be the last time a run will take place on the current runway which is due to be resurfaced in May 2019. The famous runway which was built in the early 1980’s has welcomed over 10 million passengers and this years run will be a historic one for those taking part. To celebrate there will be a number of prizes on the day for participants to have a chance of winning including flights to Barcelona, and Bristol.

Entry to the event costs €20 per adult and €5 for under-16’s. A special family rate of €40 will be available for families of 2 adults and 2 kids.  All participants will receive a race t-shirt and complimentary car parking and refreshments at the airport will be provided on the day. Participants can sign up and find more information by visiting The number of participants is restricted and those interested are advised to register early to avoid disappointment.
