With its fifth edition on 19 September 2021, Wizz Air, one of Europe’s fastest growing airlines and the largest low-cost carrier in Central and Eastern Europe, joined the Olympic Gold medallist as the event’s title sponsor of the Wizz Air Bucharest International Half Marathon.
“We are delighted to welcome one of Europe’s most recognisable airline as our naming rights partner of our running event from 2021. I wanted to give back as much as I could to this sport I love so much. This is also why I started to organize the running race in Bucharest and wanted to turn it into a top international event. Step by step, we built a beautiful community of runners, around this race, people who have been there for us especially during this difficult time. And I would like to thank them for that. I am thrilled that we managed to trigger the interest of Wizz Air and I am certain that we can provide an even more gratifying experience to runners, together, on the most beautiful streets of Bucharest, at the Wizz Air Bucharest International Half Marathon. We will be running together in the next years and I am sure this will be a memorable experience for everyone”, said Constantina Diță.
Wizz Air supports a series of running competitions in countries such as Hungary, Bulgaria, Poland, Macedonia, Ukraine and Romania, in Cluj.
After the 2020 edition has been cancelled, as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, the fifth edition of the race was rescheduled for 19 September 2021.
