Oxford Town and Gown

About Oxford Town and Gown

Oxford Town and Gown is the oldest run in the series. It started in 1982 by local runners as a fun run to raise funds for muscular dystrophy and still to this day all profits from the race go to Muscular Dystrophy UK (MDUK).

Our unique route is the only closed-road City Centre 10k in Oxford with a glorious stretch along the River Cherwell and finish in the University Parks. In 2019, the run was awarded Best 10k in South East England by the Running Awards.

FAQs and Additional Information

Oxford Town and Gown route

Our route takes you through the closed roads of Oxford City Centre and University Parks. You’ll run past many of the beautiful and historic landmarks and University buildings that Oxford has to offer, with marshalling and clear signage throughout. We’ve had to change the route so that it’s one loop and runners don’t lap each other. You may overtake, but please be respectful and give yourself some distance when overtaking.

Water stations

To limit contact we have removed water stations, which is guidance we’ve followed from Run Britain. If you need water during the race, we recommend carrying a small water bottle. At the finish, you’ll find a water bottle in a recyclable cardboard pack (thanks to Just Water) in your goody bag.
