After the success of the first Spitfire 10K we will once again be holding the event at both our London and Cosford sites. The 2017 event is open to 800 runners who will have the opportunity to run 10K in an unusual setting and 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 gently undulating course you will get to run up and down the runway, round the museum grounds and past iconic aircraft.

At the end of the race you will be awarded with an exclusive 2017 Spitfire 10K medal.  We will also have 2017 running t-shirts available to purchase in advance for £8.00 or £10.00 on race day. Order t-shirts by 13 August 2017 and they can be collected 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.
