Grant Thornton Airport Run

Posted on Posted in News

Belfast City Airport once again hosted the unique 5k race around their runway in darkness.  It is an unusual experience to run on a surface more familiar with Flybe and Aer Lingus aeroplanes but this did nothing to deter the Towerview Primary School team of David Massey, Jodi Smith, Darren Hamilton and Chris Downey from winning the mixed team event. 

 

 

The team’s combined total of 1:11:09 was six minutes ahead of 2nd placed team who were a men only team.  Amongst the times posted from the team there were two personal bests and two season bests and although it is generally perceived that runways are flat, the runners found out otherwise as they flew up and down the asphalt.
