To celebrate 100 years of the Royal Air Force, RAF Museum Cosford has set a new challenge to run 100km in 100 days. The Spitfire 100K Challenge is a virtual race which launches in April, and runners have exactly 100 days to walk, jog or run 100km in a location of their choice. Runners will be given a log sheet to record their 100K before being rewarded with a spinning propeller Spitfire 100K Challenge medal.

Entry costs £20 per person and all proceeds will go towards the RAF100 Appeal, a joint venture between the RAF and four major RAF charities.

As a virtual race, the 100K challenge can be completed anywhere in the world and runners from as far as America, Germany and Denmark have already signed up. Online registration closes on Sunday 1 April when the challenge begins.

The annual Spitfire 10K will also be returning this September, giving participants the opportunity to race across the airfield and down the runway at RAF Cosford. Registration is now open and this year, up to 1,200 runners can participate in the race which takes place on Sunday 2 September, with children able to take part in a gentler family run.
