Oxford Town and Gown

Congratulations and thank you to everyone who took part on Sunday 13 May. The results and photos are ready to be viewed using the links below.

We aim to open registrations for 2019 in the next few months. Our next event in the series is Cambridge Town and Gown which is open for registrations now. We hope to see you there!

Oxford Town and Gown is the oldest run in the series. It started in 1982 as a fun run. It now attracts up to 5,000 runners every year – including serious athletes, fun runners and club runners. The 10k takes you along a City Centre closed-road route that finishes in the University Parks.

This route is unique and scenic, which makes it perfect for all runners. You’ll find beginners taking on their first 10k race, and more experienced runners, hoping to beat their personal bests.

If you’re wanting to run your first, your fastest or your most orange 10k yet – this is the race for you.

Oxford Town and Gown route

The event route is the same as in 2017 with one minor change to the final turn. Before making the final left turn to the finish, runners will be directed off the path onto the grass to avoid collision with people using the Keble Gate entrance on University Parks. The turn will be signed, marshaled and will have barriers to make this clear and easy for runners.

The start will be 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!
