Runners gathered at an airport

We are proud to share that Solent Airport 5k is returning on Sunday 23rd June 2024. This 5k run is a one-of-a-kind event that offers runners an unforgettable experience to ‘run the runway’ at Solent Airport.

In 2023, this was such a fantastic event for us, raising over £6,000 for Naomi House & Jacksplace. In 2024, the run will be bigger and better as we allow more runners to take part. We are grateful to Solent Airport and Fareham Borough Council for welcoming us back and are really looking forward to meeting all the 2024 runners.
