The 2018 Aberdeen Runway Run was organised by Ryan Broadhurst of CHC Helicopter to support three charities and we were chosen as one of those charities to benefit from those taking part.
At midnight on the 30th June each runner completed a 3.5km run along the entire length of the lit runway of Aberdeen International Airport. Runners chose to run either as part of a team marathon challenge or as a fun run.
VWD made the trip north to visit Aberdeen and meet some of the fantastic people involved in both organising, and taking part in this amazing event. The atmosphere on the night was truly great, with all participants meeting at CHC to be briefed, and entertained, before the event itself. We have to say a massive thank you to CHC Helicopter - and their staff - for managing and providing the facilities for the evening, and for keeping everyone safe during the run at the airport. And yes, they genuinely had to have the airport closed to allow this event to take place, and all security and safety had to be maintained throughout the entire time we were there. No mean feat !
