Spitfire 10K RAFM Blue

Event Description

Chocks away! The Spitfire 10K returns to the RAF Museum Cosford!

Join us for the Spitfire 10K at the RAF Museum Cosford for the unique opportunity to run down the Airfield carrying the name of a Battle of Britain servicemen and supporting the RAF Museum Cosford.

The RAF Museum Cosford is thrilled to announce that the Spitfire 10K will take place on Sunday 28 August 2022. Sign up for this unique event – your support enables the RAF Museum, a registered Charity, to continue to tell the inspiring stories of RAF personnel, just like The Few – the courageous Battle of Britain Pilots and Crew who fought in the skies above Britain in 1940.

If you are unable to attend the race at the RAF Museum Cosford, check out our Virtual Spitfire 10K race – you can join from anywhere!


Sunday 28 August 2022  

Race at the RAF Museum Cosford

At the RAF Museum Cosford, you will take off from the Hangar 1, head outside and begin the race with a loop of the Museum site past iconic aircraft including the VC10, Hercules and Britannia, before heading onto the airfield at RAF Cosford. It’s a unique opportunity to run alongside the wartime hangars, the air traffic control tower and sprint down the runway!

Once you cross the finish line you will receive the highly coveted Spitfire 10K race medal.

Run with The Few!

Our Roll of Honour cards are one of the most popular elements of the race. They enable you to carry the name of a Battle of Britain serviceman with you on your run.

You will receive your Roll of Honour card with your race pack in early August giving you enough time to research the incredible life of ‘your’ pilot and share their stories. Whether you talk about your pilot with your family and friends or share their stories on social media – we want you to get involved and keep their memory alive!

Raise £100 and receive your Spitfire 10K running top for free!

Help us further honour those who defended our skies during the Battle of Britain by fundraising for the Museum. Pledge to raise £100 and you will receive your Spitfire 10K running top for free. With your help, we are hoping to reach a fundraising target, in addition to your entry, of £10,000 - £1,000 for every kilometre you will be running! 

£10,000 could provide our Access and Learning team with the resources to deliver three hundred Battle of Britain workshops to over 10,000 children, ensuring the stories, like those of the pilots whose name you will be wearing on your Roll of Honour card on race day, are shared with future generations.

Each year, the Access and Learning team welcome over 60,000 learners.  They deliver an incredible 1,500 workshops to over 400 different schools including over 60 Special Education Needs schools.   Despite the impact of the pandemic, the team have continued to engage with schools and have developed a whole new online learning programme, providing virtual workshops to ensure that we continue to be able to engage the younger generations and share the story of the RAF. 

As a registered charity, we rely heavily on fundraising, visitor donations and our commercial activities to generate income. As a result of the closures we face in 2020 and last year, we have experienced a reduction of more than £3 million in our self-generated income.  Your fundraising really will make a difference to the Museum.

If you would like to join our amazing team of fundraisers, please select this option when you re-register.

Our Spitfire Family Run will also be back at our Museums this year. This run is perfect for the younger ones but can also be completed by the whole family. Further details will follow shortly – watch this space!
