Oxford Half Marathon 2020

Coordinate your running shoes with your party hat to celebrate the 10th edition of the Virgin Oxford Half!

Whether a seasoned veteran or a newbie to running, take on 13.1 miles through the pristine, winding streets of historic Oxford and dreaming spires. The route is flat and begins in the city-centre passing through Old Marston village, the River Cherwell, Oxford University’s impressive Lady Margaret Hall, before finally finishing on Parks Road.
