Up to 2,500 runners braved last night's weather to hit the tarmac for the annual Cork Airport 5km Runway Run.
After the last flight landed last night, airport officials lead the runners out onto the runway for the fourth year of the run.
The event was organised by Cork Athletics on behalf of Athletics Ireland and in aid of Cork Airport’s 2018 Charity of the Year, Shine Centre for Autism.
Participants include Cork and Ireland legendary athlete Sonia O'Sullivan and fellow Olympian Mick Clohisey
Cork Airport, Niall MacCarthy said: “We are delighted to host the 5km Runway Run for the fourth year, and welcome the 2,500 runners set to take part this year.
“Cork Airport is extremely busy at the moment, with scheduled flights to over 40 destinations. Holding a midnight event, when no planes are landing or taking off, means participants have a unique chance to run, jog or walk Cork Airport’s normally active runway, along with supporting the vital work that is being done by Shine.”
