Event Description

Take part in the Hurricane 80K Challenge to mark 80 years since the Battle of Britain took place in our skies!

To commemorate this significant anniversary, we are challenging you to walk, run, jog, swim or bike 80K in 80 days.

The Challenge was due to start on the 21 April, but given our current situation we have decided to start it early. Exercise is important to us all and we hope the challenge can provide you with some inspiration during these difficult times.

We are also pleased that for our Armed Forces Family we are offering you the chance to take part for just £10. This offer is for serving personnel and their families.

You still have until the 10 July (the start of the Battle of Britain) to complete it. Our challenge is virtual which means you too can participate and complete the challenge from anywhere in the world. After you have completed the 80K then you just submit your log and we will post you an exclusive Hurricane 80K Challenge medal.

The Hurricane, often under-valued in importance in comparison to the Spitfire, played an influential role in protecting Britain from the Luftwaffe during the summer of 1940. We thought we would give this amazing aircraft the spotlight it deserves.

This challenge can also be completed anywhere in the world!  During the Second World War RAF Fighter Command  had pilots sign up from all over the Commonwealth and occupied Europe. They came from Poland, New Zealand, Australia, Canada, South Africa and France to fly and fight.

So join us, wherever you live, and challenge yourself to complete 80K in 80 days! For more information including ideas of how to complete the challenge and an FAQ document please head to the RAF Museum website.

Hurricane 80K T-shirt

You can purchase a souvenir t-shirt to be delivered with your medal following the end of the challenge. T-shirts are £12.00 per person. Sizes range from Small to XX Large, choose your size when entering the challenge.
