Following the sell-out 2017 Spitfire 10K we are offering an increased capacity for up to 1200 runners to take part in the 2018 Spitfire 10K in the unusual setting and magnificent surroundings of the RAF Museum Cosford.
You have come through to the Cosford event page so all information relates to the event on 2nd September 2018. For more information about The London Spitfire 10K please check the Nice Work website.
The 2018 Spitfire 10K begins outside Hangar One, taking runners around the Museum site, past several iconic aircraft, before entering the RAF Cosford airfield! During this slightly 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 2018 as this year will be the centenary of the Royal Air Force.
T-shirts can be ordered when you purchase your Spitfire 10K entry and will be available for collection on the day. The deadline to pre-order your t-shirt is Sunday 12th August 2018.
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 2018 we will also be holding a NEW Spitfire Family Run. This gentle run will take place around our transformed site. 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.
Run in Style - in 2016 we had one runner taking part dressed as a Spitfire - can you beat that? Why not have a go and run in wartime fashion. Anything goes so get creative and you may even see yourself featured on our Facebook page after the event!
