An Announcement about Our Royal Patronage

Design Competition for Children Launched

Published on: 18 February 2022

Calling all budding artists aged 16 and under enter our brilliant new competition to design a medal for the Spitfire Family Run and Spitfire Family Dash. The winning design will be produced and handed out to all participants as they cross the finish line at both our Cosford and London events.

We are looking for a design that showcases the Spitfire, the RAF and those inspiring people who serve! Get inspired by the RAF Museum and the aircraft on display. Imagine running in this unique location with hundreds of others. Do you love the Spitfire as much as we do? Incorporate the Spitfire or its unique shape and elements into your medal to make it stand out.

You can use the whole aircraft, the propellers or just the wings. Use your imagination to create something that our runners will be proud to wear around their necks.

For more details and inspiration, check out the Resource Pack on our website.

The winners will not only receive a free entry for themselves and up to 5 friends to enter either race at the RAF Museum London or Cosford, but they will also receive an amazing Spitfire prize bundle from the RAF Museum Shop (terms and conditions apply).

Everyone under 16 can join the competition!

Design our new Family Run and Family dash medal

To be in with a chance of winning send your designs, as a photo or scan, to with the subject line ‘Spitfire Medal’. Entries should include the entrant’s name, age and contact details for the entrant’s parent/guardian.

The competition closes on 31 March and the winner will be announced on 30 April.

Good luck!
