The Spitfire 10K event was created in in 2015 to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain. Since then thousands of runners join us every year at our Museums and virtual running the distance all over the world.

Whether this will be your first 10K race or you are regular at running races, you are invited to be part of this incredible event and challenge yourself whilst supporting the RAF Museum.

The virtual race allows you to tailor the racing experience to fit your schedule and ability. You can choose to start the race on race day at 10.00am for a real race experience; or run the entire distance at some point over the weekend. Whichever way you choose, we will be there to support and motivate you along the way. We have got an exciting programme of music, entertainment, stories and talks prepared for you.
