The Twilight Runway Challenge is the Community Matters Partnership Project (CMPP) flagship fundraising event of the year. It is back and we want you to join us at Chineham Park to make it bigger and better than ever! 

The annual event is a fun evening which takes place along the airstrip at Blackbushe Airport once the flights have stopped landing. 

How to take part 

You can run for fun or challenge yourself to complete the runway challenge as quickly as possible over this flat course. If you don’t fancy running, then you can walk, cycle, skateboard, rollerblade or scoot. One year someone even completed the event on a unicycle, so the sky is the limit! 

Challengers can enter the 3k or 5k routes or you can complete 10k by doing the 5k circuit twice.  Walkers will only be able to enter the 3k or 5k.  

Everyone taking part will receive a goodie bag and a finisher’s medal. 

Use the challenge to get fit, beat your personal best, take part as a sports team, with colleagues, friends or family.

Get involved 

Frasers Property is kindly paying for the Chineham Park team to enter.  The team is then fundraising on behalf of Sebastian’s Action Trust, their chosen park charity. They provide emotional, social and practical care for life-limited and life-threatened children and their families. They also offer family respite care at their flagship facility, The Bluebells, together with outreach and specialist support at their second centre.  The aim is to reduce isolation, providing meaningful support and building resilience to help families face the uncertainties of the future.

Since its inception in 2012, when 60 runners took part, this wonderful event has raised over £68,000 for local charitable causes.
