Oxford Town and Gown

*Important update*

It is with huge sadness that we confirm the 39th Oxford Town and Gown will not be going ahead on 3 May 2020.

We have been closely monitoring the escalating coronavirus situation and at a time of such uncertainty and worry, we must put health first, and we don’t feel it’s right to go ahead.

We are so sorry that this has happened, and we want to thank all of you for your support, enthusiasm and dedication over the last couple of months.

Your training is not wasted, if you are well, we encourage you to keep running, use it to channel emotion through an unsettling time, and be stronger come autumn.

We are working with local authorities and key stakeholders to try and secure an alternative date. Please bear with us whilst we review our options and understand that this does take some time.

We will update you as soon as we possibly can.

Thank you so much for your patience and support.

Additional Information

Oxford Town and Gown route

The 2020 route is to be confirmed, but is likely to remain very similar to the 2019 route shown with minor amends. The start is on South Parks Road, which is a five-minute walk from the Event Village. There will be signage from the Event Village as well as announcements on the PA.

The finish is in University Parks, going into the Event Village where runners will be cheered by crowds and the event compere.

The route takes you on to Oxford High Street and round the back roads of many of Oxford’s historic colleges. As you loop around the closed roads and soak up the atmosphere of the crowds, you’ll enter University Parks for the final 3km of the route. After running along the River Cherwell, you’ll finish your race in front of the Event Village and Cricket Pavilion.

Fun fact about the route:

Some of the historic colleges you run past date back to the 13th century!
