Event Description

 

The Spitfire 10K and a Family Spitfire Run will take-off from our fantastic London site on Saturday 29 August 2020!

 

SPITFIRE 10K

 

After another sell-out event in 2019 we are excited to launch the Spitfire 10K in London for 2020. We are giving 900 runners the opportunity to run 10K on the site of the Historic London Aerodrome. Don’t miss the chance to book your tickets and get one of our famous Spitfire 10K medals!

The Spitfire 10K in 2020 year will be especially significant as it will be held to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain and all the men and women who defended Britain’s skies during the summer of 1940. This is why all our runners wear the name of a Battle of Britain RAF Pilot with their race number, so that we may share the story of those  who took part in in this pivotal aerial campaign with a new generation. 

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 that 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, you will run back into the Museum and conduct one final lap on site before crossing the finish line. At the end of the race you will be awarded with the highly sought-after Spitfire 10K medal.

 

SPITFIRE FAMILY RUN

We will also be holding the Spitfire Family Run. This gentle run will follow a 1K route. 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, however, parents and guardians are welcome to accompany children without entering themselves.
