Event Description

After the success of the 2015 Spitfire 10K at our London site, the event will be held at both our London and Cosford sites this year where 700 runners will have the opportunity to run 10k in an unusual setting in 1940's attire (if you wish!)

You have come through to the Cosford event page so all information relates to the event on 3rd September 2017. For more information about the London Spitfire 10K please click here.

Commemorate the Battle of Britain in style, starting and finishing in the magnificent surroundings of the RAF Museum Cosford. The race begins in the shadow of the Spitfire in Hangar One before taking you outside and onto the RAF Cosford airfield!  During this flat course you will get to run up and down the iconic runway, past the RAF Deployed Operational Training Area (DOTA) and past the impressive VC10 and Hercules.  Don't forget to duck down as you pass our live firing range!

At the end of the race you will be awarded with an exclusive 2017 Spitfire 10K medal.  We will also have commemorative running t-shirts available to purchase in advance or on race day.

Please note that access onto the Airfield and runway are for runners only, spectators will not be able to gain access into this area.

The Spitfire 10k will take place in the morning on 3 September at 10am.

Run in Style

Why not do something different and do the Spitfire 10K in 1940s dress? Don your victory curls or flying jacket and run this event in style!  In 2015 we had a chap come dressed as a Spitfire - can you beat that?
