Spitfire 100K Challenge

1 April - 10 July 2018

Spitfire 100K Challenge

This year take up our challenge to walk, run, jog or saunter your way to 100K in 100 days!

Date: 1 April – 10 July 2018
Cost: £20.00 per person (50p booking fee applies)

The NEW Spitfire 100K Challenge will celebrate the Centenary of the Royal Air Force by starting on Sunday 1 April, the day the RAF was founded in 1918. You then have 100 days to undertake 100K which gives you until 10 July to complete the challenge.

Our challenge is virtual, which means you have the flexibility to complete the 100K throughout the 100 days.  You get to choose the time and the place whether it’s on the road, in the gym, or you can even walk it!  You can even get friends and family involved for moral support along the way.

Shortly after you have signed up to complete the 100K Challenge, you will be sent your Distance Log so you can keep track of how far you've run distances and we will publish the names of those who have completed the Spitfire 100K Challenge.

We would also love to see your progress on social media, so keep us updated on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using #Spitfire100K100days.

After you have completed your 100K you will be awarded with an exclusive 100K Spitfire Challenge medal.


Entries are open now – SIGN UP HERE!
