ZAGREB, 18 September 2019 – A unique charity run will take place at Zagreb’s Franjo Tuđman Airport later this month and due to huge interest from the public, a new round of registrations is to be opened.
The 5km “00:24 RUN” will take place at 24 minutes after midnight on 29 September on Zagreb airport’s runway. There was huge interest with all 1000 spots selling out in record time. Organisers say due to the large interest in the event more places will be opened.
The second wave of registrations will open on Thursday, 19 September 2019 at 3 pm.
Organisers say preparations for the 00:24 RUN race are demanding and challenging given that it is a race taking place in a protected area. All the proceeds raised from the race will be donated to the Children’s Oncology Rebro Foundation in Zagreb.
“We, as a company, have already been involved in several humanitarian and sports events, so we are glad to be engaged as hosts this time,” says Lidia Capkovic Martinek, Advisor to the Director of MZLZ.
All competitors will run past civilian aircrafts and military MiGs on the route, while their every step on the illuminated aerial track will be monitored by a MUP helicopter.
The event will start with pre-race entertainment at 21.00 pm on 28 September 28 and will end at 03.00 am on 29 September after post-run celebrations finish, which will include a fireworks display, DJ, food, drinks, party and a water cannon salute.
