Spitfire Family Run and Spitfire Family Dash London
27 August 2022
Join us for the Spitfire Family Run and the Spitfire Family Dash in 2022. The races are perfect for the younger ones but can also be completed by the whole family.
A bit too young to run the Spitfire 10K? That doesn’t mean you can’t get involved in one of our races! Everyone can join in by taking part in the Spitfire Family Run or the Spitfire Family Dash. Book your tickets now.
Both races take off from our start line on our ‘airfield’. The Spitfire Family Dash is the perfect race for our youngest participants and everyone who wants to join a gentle fun run. You can walk, run, hop, skip or jump your way to the finish line. Why not dress up or run with your favourite cuddly toy – or take the smallest ones on a run in a pushchair? The race will take you around our trackway before crossing the finish line. The Spitfire Family Run is a 2KM race around the Museum’s Historic Hangars. Your race will be timed and the fastest in each age group will receive a prize at the end of the race.
Upon completion of both races, participants will be rewarded with a unique medal, designed by the winners of our medal design competition.
The races are suitable for all ages. Children under 11 must be under supervision by an adult during the event. You will receive your race pack at least 2 weeks in advance, which will include race number and instructions for the day. Please note that we require the details of those taking part when you book tickets, entries are not transferable.
