Spitfire 10K RAFM Blue

Event Description

Chocks away! The Spitfire 10K is back! 

After the incredible feedback and support in 2020, we are excited to announce that the Spitfire 10K will take place again on Saturday 28 August 2021 at the RAF Museum London.

You will start the race in the centre of the Museum, you will then set off around the streets of Colindale. The historic location RAF Hendon Airfield will form the route of your race, running down residential streets which were once landing strips for Spitfire’s. On your return to the Museum you will run through our Hangar and underneath the Sunderland Flying boat. Once you cross the finish line you will receive the highly coveted Spitfire 10K race medal.

Fundraise for the RAF Museum and receive a free t-shirt!

Help us honour those who defended our skies during the Battle of Britain by fundraising for the RAF Museum and pledging to raise £80 for the 80th anniversary and receive your race day t-shirt for free.  

Last year, our amazing fundraisers raised an additional £8,000 in sponsorship, this year we are hoping to reach £10,000.  With your support, we will be able to continue to share the RAF Story – past, present and future.   If you would like to pledge to raise £80 please select the sponsorship option when signing up online.  If you have any further questions do contact 

The Spitfire 10K is a race organised by the RAF Museum charity. We therefore ask that all runners wishing to raise funds while running only do so for the RAF Museum, we thank you for respecting this.
