Saturday 16th September

The popular Twilight Runway Challenge returns on Saturday 16th September, encouraging people to get active whilst raising money for charitable causes in the local community. Participants can run, walk, cycle, scoot or skateboard along 3km, 5km or 10km of the airstrip of Blackbushe Airport, taking part for fun or supporting their chosen charity.

This annual sporting event is organised by CMPP (Community Matters Partnership Project) and attracts a wide variety of participants, from people looking to get fit, beating a personal best, taking part in fancy dress or having fun with friends, family or colleagues.

Simon Jarvis (CEO) states “CMPP is about community and collaboration, our Twilight Runway Challenge embodies this. Last year the event helped to raise over £38,000 for local charitable causes and we are hoping to raise even more this year”

The event is fortunate to have a diverse array of charity partners, including Oakleaf Enterprise in Guildford. Jen Clay (Fundraising & Partnership Manager) at the charity reveals “Oakleaf Enterprise is delighted to be a charity partner of the Twilight Runway Challenge once more. This event is a fantastic opportunity to raise both awareness and funds for our support of people managing mental ill-health in Surrey.”

The challenge would not be possible without the generous support of headline sponsors – local businesses Hi-Speed Services, Herrington Carmichael, Amazon Filters and Village Hotels.
