Spitfire 100K Challenge

1 April - 10 July 2018

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

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 walking the dog!  You can even get friends and family involved for moral support along the way.

Once you have signed up to complete the 100K Challenge, download the Distance Log so you can keep track of how far you've run, 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. We will release images of the medal very soon.

The RAF 100 Appeal Logo

The 100K Spitfire Challenge will form part of a series of events taking place across the country celebrating and commemorating the history and achievements of the Royal Air Force and inspiring young people. It is also an opportunity to raise vital funds for the RAF100 Appeal, which is a joint venture between the Royal Air Force and the four major RAF charities – the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund, the Royal Air Forces Association, the Royal Air Force Charitable Trust and the Royal Air Force Museum. The aim of the Appeal is to raise money for the RAF family and to create a lasting legacy as we celebrate 100 years of the Royal Air Force in 2018. For more information on the RAF100 appeal click here
