Join #TeamARUK for this scenic half marathon!

The Oxford Half Marathon offers an unforgettable experience of the historical landmarks of the iconic university city.


Starting in the university town at Trinity College, you’ll run through Old Marston village, crossing the River Cherwell before you head back into the university city campus, passing Lady Margaret Hall. The run finishes at Radcliffe Square to celebrate your achievements! Not only is the course full of beautiful scenery of Oxford, but it is also fast and flat with all roads closed for the day.

Make a weekend of it and enjoy the Virgin Festival for Fitness to energise and get you excited for the next day ahead, with lots of fun-filled with activities, music, and good food!
