  • On 3rd September 2017 I shall be running the Spitfire 10k at RAF Cosford. Each runner has been given the name of a pilot who was involved in the Battle of Britain and I am honoured to be running for Sergeant Herbert Robert Mitchell of 3 Squadron. I am proud to be paying tribute and hope he will be proud of me......
