Route description
Route description

Runners will start front and centre in the middle of the museum green at the historic RAF Hendon Airfield.

The 10k route will take you through the site and out onto the streets of Colindale, which were once landing strips for the iconic Spitfire's, before your epic finish along the 'taxiway', through the Hangar, and under the Sunderland Flying boat.

Great event can spend rest of day visiting museum. 20% off food and merchandise. Free parking. Run underneath a plane to finish on the path of the old runway.

Did not enjoy the actual course at all. I did not expect to be running along the side of main roads. Great atmosphere and medal. Good organisation.

A nice course, but at times the paths were very narrow which meant it was difficult to get round - especially when the fast runners were overtaking on their second loop. There was also a bit of traffic to negotiate, and didn't help when one of the marshalls allowed the cars to keep moving when we were just about to cross the road! According to the website, my results don't exist which is a shame. Otherwise, it was enjoyable and a really nice atmosphere.
