Cosford Spitfire 10K

After the success of the 2016 Spitfire 10K at our Cosford site, the event will, once again, be held at both our London and Cosford sites this year 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 Cosford event page so all information relates to the event on 3rd September 2016. For more information about the London Spitfire 10K please view our website. Commemorate the Battle of Britain in style, starting and finishing in the magnificent surroundings of the RAF Museum Cosford. The race begins in the shadow of the Spitfire in Hangar One before taking you outside and onto the RAF Cosford airfield! During this flat course you will get to run up and down the iconic runway, past the RAF Deployed Operational Training Area (DOTA) and past the impressive VC10 and Hercules. Don’t forget to duck down as you pass our live firing range! At the end of the race you will be awarded with an exclusive 2017 Spitfire 10K medal. We will also have commemorative running t-shirts available to purchase in advance or on race day. Please note that access onto the Airfield and runway are for runners only, spectators will not be able to gain access into this area. Details for the day The Spitfire 10k will take place in the morning on 3 September at 10.00 am. On site facilities include: Toilets, changing, parking, free park and ride, bag drop, restaurant, 4D Experience, Fun ‘n’ Flight Interactive Gallery and museum shop. A free park and ride system will operate from the Cosford train station car park. Normal parking charges apply on the museum grounds (£3 for up to 3 hours or £4 for up to 6 hours). There will be a restriction on vehicle movement on site between 08:45am and 11.00am. If you need to move your vehicle during this time please use the Park and Ride car park.

Run 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! In 2016 we had a chap come dressed as a Spitfire – can you beat that?
