Spitfire 10K and Spitfire Family Run 2020
30th August 2020 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
We are giving 1500 runners the opportunity to run a 10K in the unusual setting and magnificent surrounding of the RAF Museum Cosford. Don’t miss the chance to book your tickets and get one of our famous medals.
The Spitfire 10K begins outside Hangar One, taking runners around the Museum site, past several iconic aircraft, before entering the RAF Cosford airfield! During this gently undulating course you will get to run up and down the runway!
Dress in style……Why not do something different and do the Spitfire 10K in 1940s dress? Don your victory curls or flying jacket and run this event in style!
The Spitfire 10K this year will be especially significant as it will be held to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain and all the men and women who defended Britain’s skies during the summer of 1940. This is why all our runners wear a Roll of Honour card with the name of a Battle of Britain RAF Pilot who served in this pivotal aerial campaign.
The Spitfire Family Run will also be back in 2020. This gentle 1K route will follow a shorter race route in the Museum grounds past several aircraft! The race is suitable for all ages, but children under 11 years must be accompanied by an adult. Please note that only paying participants will be awarded a medal, however, parents and guardians are welcome to accompany children without entering themselves.
