What to expect

The Twilight Runway Challenge is a fun, family event which takes place along the airstrip itself (once the flights have stopped landing)! Gates open from 4.15pm with the Challenge starting at 5.30pm. 

Run for fun or challenge yourself to complete it as quickly as you can. Not everyone chooses to run: some walk, cycle, skateboard, rollerblade or scoot - we have even had someone take part on a unicycle! 


Challengers can enter the 3k or 5k routes or you can complete 10k by doing the 5k circuit twice.  If you are planning to walk the course, you will only be able to enter the 3k or 5k.  


All Challengers will receive a goodie bag including a finisher's medal. 


This is not a professionally managed running event and so there are no chip timings. 

CMPP would like to thank Blackbushe Airport for their support in hosting the annual Twilight Runway Challenge for the second time. Since its inception in 2012, when 60 runners gamely struggled up the Runway at TAG Airport in Farnborough, this wonderful event has raised over £68,000 for local charitable causes.

We look forward to seeing you there!
