Event Description

Spitfire 10K

After a sell-out event in 2018 we are excited to launch the Spitfire 10K in London for 2019. We are giving 800 runners the opportunity to run a 10K on the historic Hendon airfield site.

The run will take you around the edge of the historic London Aerodrome that once existed in Colindale. This is a road race so you will be running along pathways and the streets to follow the old airfield. The race will start on the museum green space, where you will run around our ‘taxiway’ that evokes the historic RAF Hendon Base, then exit the Museum by running past our Spitfire Gate Guardian. Once you’ve completed two laps of the site you will run back on past the Spitfire, through Hangar 1 and under the beautiful Short Sunderland Flying boat, before crossing the finish line outside.

At the end of the race you will be awarded with the highly sought-after Spitfire 10K medal.

Spitfire Family Run

The Spitfire Family Run will also be back in 2019. This gentle 1K run will take place around the Museum site. Each registered runner will receive a special Spitfire medal when they cross the finish line. The race is suitable for all ages, but children under 11 years must be accompanied by an adult. Please note that only paying participants will be awarded a medal.

T-shirts and running vests

2019 Spitfire Technical t-shirts (£10.00) and NEW for 2019, Running Vests (£12.00), can also be purchased when you book your Spitfire 10K entry and will be available for collection on the day. 

The deadline to pre-order your t-shirt is 28 July 2019. Please note that there will be a limited number of t-shirts and vests available for sale on the day, but we recommend ordering in advance to avoid disappointment. T-shirts will be available for £12.00 on the day and vests £14.00.
