Sat, September 2, 2017, 9:00 AM – 11:00 PM BST
This year the event will once again be held at both the London and Cosford sites where 700 runners will have the opportunity to run 10k in an unusual setting in 1940's attire (if you wish!).
You have come through to the London event page so all information relates to the event on 2nd September 2016. For more information about the Cosford Spitfire 10K please check our website.
Commemorate the 77th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain in style, starting and finishing in the magnificent surroundings of the RAF Museum in Colindale. The race begins in the shadow of the Avro Lancaster before taking you outside, run past a Bloodhound Missile, original wartime buildings, our Battle of Britain Hall and a Spitfire and Hurricane replica before leaving the museum for two loops of a flat road course. You will be awarded with an exclusive medal at the finish line, we will also have commemorative running t-shirts available to purchase in advance or on race day.

Run in Style
In 2016 we had a chap come dressed as a Spitfire - can you beat that? Why not have a go and come in war time fashion. Anything goes so get creative and you may even see yourself featured on our Facebook page after the event!
