1 September 2018
This year we are offering 750 runners the opportunity to run a 10K on our historic airfield site. 2018 is a big year for the Royal Air Force and for the Museum. We have three new exhibitions and a beautiful landscaped site, evoking the London Aerodrome from 100 year ago. You will start under the Sunderland and run through the site and then continue around the streets of Colindale, before coming back on site to finish on our ‘taxiway’.
At the end of the race you will be awarded with an exclusive Spitfire 10K medal, which will be extra special for 2018 as this year will be the centenary of the Royal Air Force.
Entry to the Museum is free of charge and runners, spectators and supporters are encouraged to explore the site on race day.
For 2018 we will also be holding a NEW Spitfire Family Run. This gentle run will take place around our transformed site.
There are still 2018 Spitfire 10K technical running t-shirts available online for pre-order at a discount price. The deadline to pre-order your t-shirt is Sunday 12 August 2018. There will be t-shirts available for purchase on the day.
This race is suitable for all ages and is a distance of approximately 0.5K. Children under 16 years must be accompanied by an adult. Please note, that only paying participants will be awarded a medal.
The Spitfire 10K will take place in both London and Cosford sites and 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.

The Spitfire 10K will take place at 9.00am on Saturday 1 September 2018. The Spitfire Family Run will take place before the main event at 8.30am. On site facilities include: toilets, disabled parking, bag drop for runners, restaurant and Museum Shop (all of which will be open early).
