On September 1 the run will be staged on Runway 1 of of the international airport and around 1,000 people will take part. The participation is mostly invitation-based, most runners will be from the aviation sector.
However, others may win a chance to take part through a competition on operator Budapest Airport’s social media page. There will be five or ten kilometer distance race and children between the age of 6-15 will be given a second chance on the runway’s concrete.
The event is considered unique in Europe and this is the only occasion of the year when the Runway 1 is taken over by runners, not planes.
