The Spitfire 10K and a NEW Family Spitfire Run will take-off from our fantastic London site on Saturday 1 September 2018! Join us for this very special event, in a very special year and help raise funds for the RAF100 Appeal! This year we are offering 800 runners the opportunity to run a 10K on our historic airfield site. 2018 is a big year for the Royal Air Force and for the Museum. We have three new exhibitions and a beautiful landscaped site, evoking the London Aerodrome from 100 year ago. You will start under the Sunderland and run through the site and then continue around the streets of Colindale, before coming back on site to finish on our 'taxiway'. At the end of the race you will be awarded with 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 12 August 2018. The 2018 design will be released in the next few months so watch this space.
