2nd Eindhoven Airport Run a success

Eindhoven, 6th April 2015

The 2nd Eindhoven Airport Run, which took place today, proved another great success. Around 1,600 people took part in the event, featuring a 5km and a 13.4km course. This year also saw the introduction of a 1.5km kids run. All participants were automatically entered into a prize draw based on their start number, with a chance to win a variety of prizes including tickets, hotel accommodation, gift vouchers, perfumes, surprise packages, running shoes and meal vouchers.

Eindhoven Airport N.V. and Golazo Sports SX, the event organisers, can look back on another successful day.

Eindhoven Airport strives to be a company which integrates with its surroundings; surroundings which contain people’s homes and places of work. It’s great to be able to engage with them in a way other than air travel. The airport is keen to organise a sequel to this fabulous sporting event on Sunday 3rd April of next year
