About The Cosford Spitfire 10k

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. 
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 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 2018 as this will be the centenary of the Royal Air Force.  
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 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.

The Course
The race begins in the shadow of the Spitfire in Hangar One before taking you outside and onto the RAF Cosford airfield!  During this gently undulating course you will get to run up and down the runway, round the museum grounds and past iconic aircraft.

First Aid
St John Ambulance or an alternative medical provider will be in attendance on the day and the course will be marshalled to provide assistance. There will also be a sweep runner following the race to ensure that nobody is left behind and that all runners are accounted for.
