Spitfire 10K – Postponed

25 August 2024

Important Notice: The 2024 Spitfire 10K is currently postponed. 

Due to essential works on the base we are afraid that we are no longer able to proceed with our Spitfire 10K race on Sunday 25 August. We are working with the RAF and endeavouring to find a new date.

If you would like a refund this can be arranged, alternatively we do hope to be able to agree on a new date and your entry can be transferred once it has been confirmed.

For further information, please contact: info@nice-work.org.uk


Two runners wearing World War Two flying hat and goggles run down the runway

The Spitfire 10K will be flying back to RAF Museum Midlands on Sunday 25th August 2024. Our unique racecourse will take runners onto the Airfield of RAF Cosford, alongside wartime hangars and the air traffic control tower, ready for a sprint down the runway. Once you cross the finish line you will receive the highly coveted Spitfire 10K medal, this year featuring a very special 10th anniversary design.

Our Roll of Honour cards enable you to carry the name of a Battle of Britain Pilot with you on your run. By finding out more about your pilot and sharing their stories you help to keep their history alive!

Marshals along the racecourse will ensure that our young runners are monitored at all times. Runners under 8 years must be accompanied by a parent or guardian*.
