Event Description

Chocks Away For The Spitfire 10K!

Take off this August as the Spitfire 10K returns to the RAF Museum Midlands!  You will be able to run for a Battle of Britain pilot and support the RAF Museum to continue telling their stories.

Thanks to your incredible support of the event in 2022, the Spitfire 10K will be flying back to the RAF Museum Midlands on Sunday 27th August 2023. Your support for this event enables the RAF Museum, a registered charity (Charity Number 1197541), 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 and the continuing story of the RAF.

Race at the RAF Museum Midlands

Chocks away! You will start the race with a loop of the RAF Museum Midlands site, passing by 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. For the first time, it will be a sustainable wooden medal which will feature a unique aircraft inspired design.

For the whole family

Our Spitfire Family Run will also be back at our Museums this year. This 1K run is perfect for the younger ones but can also be completed by the whole family. For 2023 the Spitfire Family Run will have an exciting new route, giving youngsters a chance to fly onto the airfield.

Fundraise for The Few and receive a free t-shirt and goody bag!

Help us honour those who defended our skies during the Battle of Britain by fundraising for the RAF Museum and pledging to raise £100. Once you hit your pledge you will receive your FREE technical t-shirt and a goody bag.

Over the last couple of years, our amazing Spitfire 10K fundraisers have raised an impressive £10,000 in sponsorship.  With your support, we will be able to continue to share the RAF Story – past, present and future. This year we are hoping to reach £5000 in fundraising.

If you would like to pledge to raise £100 please select the fundraising option when signing up online.  We will then send you an email which gives you instructions about how to register your fundraising page.

We will be there on race day so you can collect your t-shirt from our fundraising stand.
