Registrations will open soon for you to take part in the 36th Oxford Town and Gown 10k and help us turn Oxford orange again by wearing stand-out-from-the-crowd orange T-shirts. Run the 10k routes around the closed streets, parks and rivers of Oxford, all in aid of Muscular Dystrophy UK. All runners receive a finisher t-shirt and medal when after the race!

It is voted one of the best road races in the UK and the university city route is unique and scenic, which makes it perfect for all runners, including those who want to take to the streets in fancy dress, beginners who have signed up to run their first race, as well as the more experienced runners who want to beat their personal bests. 

The event is organised by and in aid of Muscular Dystrophy UK and we are the charity for 70,000 people living with muscle-wasting conditions in the UK. So far the Town and Gown 10k series has raised over £1.85 million, which is all down to the dedication of participants who sign up to the events and fundraise for the charity.
