Saturday 20th June 2015, saw the largest ever turn out from the local community take part in the 4th Annual Twilight Runway Challenge despite the massive amount of rainfall!! More than 350 cheerful participants lined up at the start line where a beautiful double rainbow came out to cheer on and support those who ran, cycled, walked, roller skated and unicycled their way around TAG Farnborough Airport’s runway and taxi ways for charity.

We are delighted to confirm that in conjunction with 6th Form College Farnborough we have raised just over £5000!!! The funds will go towards the Community Matters Partnership Project Youth Aspiration Fund (YAF), which is used to provide grants to local projects that help young people to reach their true potential, from master classes in enterprise to mentoring and reading projects.

Participant were from a number of CMPP partners including Aldershot Garrison, Capquest, Central Heating Services, Farnborough Business Park, Fluor, Hart and Rushmoor 19-14 Consortium, HRG, Knights Group, Rushmoor Borough Council, Source Supplies, TAG Farnborough Airport, The Sixth Form College Farnborough, Village Urban Resort and Zurich.

Representatives from The Village Velocity Gym helped get everyone warmed up and ready to go, by leading all those taking part in a series of warm up exercises as well as providing goody bags for everybody who took on the challenge.
