Ireland West Airport Knock has announced the return of the annual 5k runway fun run.

The event will be sponsored by Portwest, and will take place on the runway at the Mayo airport on Sat 10th September next at 5pm.

The 5k runway run was suspended for the past two years due to Covid-19, and all existing online bookings made for the event planned for 2020 are still valid.

This will be the first time the runway run will take place on the newly-resurfaced runway.

All funds raised will go to the airport's charity partners - The Childhood Cancer Foundation, the Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust and Sensational Kids Charity.

Those wishing to participate will find all the details on / runwayrun.

And for the first time this year, a virtual option is also available for those who wish to support the three charities but are unable to make it on the day, and would like to do a virtual run or walk.
