The Cosford Spitfire 10k

Following another sell-out in 2018 Spitfire 10K we are offering 1200 runners the opportunity to take part in the 2019 Spitfire 10K in the unusual setting and magnificent surroundings of the RAF Museum Cosford. 

The 2019 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!

At the end of the race, you will be awarded an exclusive Spitfire 10K medal, which will be extra special for 2019.

Entry to the Museum is free of charge and runners, spectators and supporters are encouraged to explore the site on race day.  Please note that access to the airfield and runway are for runners only, spectators will not be able to access this area.

For 2019 we will also be holding the Spitfire Family Run. This gentle run will follow a shorter race route on the Museum grounds. Each registered runner will receive a special medal upon completion. The race is suitable for all ages, but children under 16 years must be accompanied by an adult. Please note that only paying participants will be awarded a medal.
