Spitfire run seeks entrants

RAFMuseum_Spitfire10K

Calling all runners… the RAF Museum Cosford needs you! Launching for the first time this year, the Spitfire 10K will give participants the opportunity to race across the airfield and down the runway at RAF Cosford in an exclusive charity fun run. The event takes place on 4 September and registration is now open.

Runners will take off from the museum’s Hangar 1, zooming outside onto the airfield, alongside the wartime hangars and past the air traffic control tower before sprinting down the runway. The scenic route around the military airfield will take runners past historic landmarks before passing the rifle range and then back onto the museum for a loop of the site on the final stretch towards the finish line. Runners will receive a well-earned memento of their day. With flat tarmac and grass terrain, the Spitfire 10K is suitable for keen runners and novices alike aged 15 and over, and runners are encouraged to dress up in wartime outfits for the day.

To register, visit www.rafmuseum.org/cosford or call 01902 376200.
