As I am sure you are aware, Aviation Action’s annual Run the Runways virtual event is back for its third year!

The annual charity fundraiser sees people all over the UK virtually running the length of 31 runways, one for each day of December.  

Run the Runways is designed for anyone to take part, regardless of fitness and ability. People are encouraged to walk, jog or run the distances each day and invite their friends, family and colleagues to join them.

With the significant downturn in the aviation sector during Covid-19 and subsequent removal of travel restrictions earlier this year, the aviation industry is continuing to experience many challenges. These issues have not only impacted individuals' mental health, but their wellbeing is continually being tested to the limits.

We are struggling with getting our message out and in the number of people signing up to the event and would be really grateful if you were able to support us in some way.


       Can we ask you to encourage your people to take part in the event for us?

·      Maybe you could purchase a batch of places, 10 or 20, in the event for members of your team to participate?

·      Or just support us with a donation to our Just Giving page?


The links to the event and just giving are here:

You’ll also find attached our press release and a poster for this event which we hope you can share with your team.

Anything you are able to do would be very welcome as we know it is a difficult time for individuals right now so anything that companies in our sector can do to help us to help those people is a real benefit to what we do.
