Update: Thanks to everyone who supported our Runway Relay, the event was a huge success which saw our colleagues complete 2,614km, that's 1,162 lengths of the runway! 

Although most of the relay took place around our colleagues' homes, we also saw a few of our team members take to the runway itself to complete their relay - take a look below to see the runway in action.

Our colleagues are completing 200 lengths of the runway in a virtual relay race for Florence Nightingale's 200th birthday on May 12th. 

To celebrate Florence Nightingale's 200th birthday and raise funds for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, we have set a challenge to complete 200 lengths of our runway in a non-contact virtual relay. Each team member will be challenged to run, walk or cycle 2.25km, and our target is to reach 450km by 12th May (a week away!) to celebrate Florence Nightingale's 200th birthday.

We are pleased to also announce that the airport will match any donations to the page up to £5,000.

We hope you enjoy keeping up with our progress on our social media channels!
