Joanna Lumley to start British-Irish Airports EXPO Royal Docks 5k Run: Targeting £100k for charity


It’s true!!! Joanna Lumley will be the official race starter of The British-Irish Airports EXPO Royal Docks Run, a 5km air transport industry evening charity race starting at 18.30 on 5 October from the British-Irish Airports EXPO at ExCeL, and following a stunning waterside route around the resurgent Royal Docks alongside London City Airport.

Miss Lumley, a star of TV, film, the British Airways inflight safety video, and Ambassador for the bone marrow transplant charity, Anthony Nolan, will start the race, and present prizes to the winners including Fastest Airport, Fastest Airline, Fastest Airport Firefighter, etc etc.

100% of entry fees will be donated to the charitable causes:

  • Anthony Nolan is a closely-held cause of British-Irish Airports EXPO director, Paul Hogan, whose daughter Brontë (12) passed away after a five-year battle with leukaemia, a brave struggle which included two bone marrow transplants from a lovely donor in Texas organised by Anthony Nolan.
  • Richard House – London’s first Childrens’ Hospice, provides palliative care to children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions across London. The charity has a two-decade long partnership with London City Airport which, together with staff, has raised some £900,000 to support children and their families at its East London site.

“Bron’s Medal” for every finisher

Entrants do not have to pester relatives and co-workers for sponsorship! All you have to do is pay a flat entry fee of £50 – there is a reduced £20 fee for Adaptive Sports competitors and others entrants requesting concession. Race entrants must also register for a FREE PASS to the British-Irish Airports EXPO. Every finisher will receive the “Bron’s Medal” commemorating the life of Brontë Hogan (1998-2011).
