The annual Spitfire 10K began in 2015 to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, and we are proud to carry on to commemorate the Battle of Britain with the Virtual Spitfire 10K.  

More than 700 runners from all over the world supported the Royal Air Force Museum by signing up for the Virtual Spitfire 10K.  Our runner joined us from the UK, Europe, South America, the USA, New Zealand, India and the UAE. Thank you to everyone who helped us share the stories of bravery and ingenuity of those who fought during the Battle of Britain, and for posting your own inspiring stories and photos.

An extra thank you to those of you who registered and pledged to raise £80 for the RAF Museum. As a charity, your support really does make a difference.

On behalf of the RAF Museum, thank you for taking part in the Virtual Spitfire 10K, we cannot wait for next year’s event.
