Registration for the 35th Oxford Town and Gown is now open!

Join 4000 runners and take on the challenge to turn Oxford orange on Sunday 15 May 2016. 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!

The university city route is unique and scenic, which make 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 £1.5 million, which is all down to the dedication of participants who sign up to the events and fundraise for the charity.
