After a sell-out event in 2019 we are excited to launch the Spitfire 10K in London for 2020. We are giving 900 runners the opportunity to run a 10K on the historic London Aerodrome and RAF Hendon site. Don’t miss the chance to book your tickets and get one of our famous medals! The run will take you around the edge of the historic London Aerodrome that once existed in Colindale. This is a road race so you will be running along pathways and the streets that follow the old airfield. The race will start on the museum green space, where you will run around our ‘taxiway’ that evokes the historic RAF Hendon Base, then exit the Museum by running past our Spitfire Gate Guardian. Once you’ve completed two laps, you will run back into the Museum and conduct one final lap on site before crossing the finish line. At the end of the race you will be awarded with the highly sought-after Spitfire 10K medal. The Spitfire 10K this year will be especially significant as it will be held to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain and all the men and women who defended Britain’s skies during the summer of 1940. This is why all our runners wear a Roll of Honour card with the name of a Battle of Britain RAF Pilot who served in this pivotal aerial campaign. The Spitfire Family Run will also be back in 2020. This gentle 1K run will take place around the Museum site. Each registered runner will receive a special Spitfire medal when they cross the finish line. The race is suitable for all ages, but children under 11 years must be accompanied by an adult. Please note that only paying participants will be awarded a medal at the finish line.
