“It’s possible to run on Deribasovskaya or Khreschatyk street as many times as you like, but only today and just for once the run is here, on the new ODS runway. In 6 days this RWY will be used for what it was made - to accept the aircraft. But for now, athletes, it’s all yours!”

“We are happy to realize such a unique event at Odesa Airport on the eve of the opening of a new ODS runway. The uniqueness of this event lies in the fact that we have achieved a win-win-win result for sports, aviation and charity. Together we take off to new heights!”

“ODS New RWY Run 2021 became one of the events dedicated to the new runway opening in Odesa International Airport. And the first ones to come to the new runway were athletes to cover the distance yet not available even for the aircraft. We are grateful to the Odesa Airport for this opportunity. We enjoyed the format of a race where you can connect perfectly straight race track and charity: all the fees were transferred to the charitable foundation “M Corporation”
