#LJLALoves Alder Hey Children's Charity
Liverpool John Lennon Airport
2020 EVENT CANCELLED/POSPONED DUE TO CORONAVIRUS. DETAILS TO FOLLOW
The runway at Liverpool John Lennon Airport usually only has the rubber of aircraft tyres running along it, but on one night in May, it will be the rubber on the soles of the feet of around 400 runners from across the region that will be pounding along the runway when the Airport becomes the location of a 5k charity run with a difference.
The event is sponsored by Liverpool Airport Holidays and is being organised by employees at the Airport to help raise donations for its charity and corporate partner, Alder Hey Children’s Charity through its #LJLALoves Alder Hey campaign to help make Alder Hey Hospital a truly world class patient-friendly hospital for the 330,000 patients and families they care for every year.
As the Airport is busy for around 20 hours each day, the event is to be staged in the early hours of Friday morning on 8th May, with runners lining up for the start at 3.30am.
Date of event: Friday 8th May
Arrival time: 2am.
Time of race: 3.30am.
Registration fee: £25
Minimum sponsorship: £50
Prior to your run, you will be provided with a Zumba warm up by the Airport Firefighters.
Thanks to the event sponsor, Liverpool Airport Holidays, we also have some fantastic prizes up for grabs which include:
Liverpool John Lennon Airport has already raised more than £173,000 for Alder Hey since 2016 and with 400 runners expected to participate in this unique event, the Airport hopes to reach its £200k target. Please find more information on how they have fundraised for #LJLALoves Alder Hey here.
