Spitfire 10K and Spitfire Family Run Cosford 2019

The Spitfire 10K and a Spitfire Family Run will take-off from our fantastic Cosford site on Sunday 1 September 2019!

We are giving runners the opportunity to run 10K in the unusual setting and magnificent surrounding of the RAF Museum Cosford. Don’t miss the chance to book your tickets and get one of our famous Spitfire 10K medals.
