About the race

We aim to open registrations for 2019 in the next few weeks

Our Junior 3k, open to 9-15-year-olds, is a chip-timed route using the same start and finish as the popular Town and Gown 10k. Schools, running clubs and families enter teams into this competitive and fun event. We’d love to see you there!

This route takes you along the last 3k of the 10k route, through the beautiful University Parks. It’s a perfect run for those just getting into running or any young person looking to set a personal best!

If you’re wanting to run your first, your fastest or your most orange 3k yet – this is the race for you.

Oxford Town and Gown – The Junior 3k route

The event route is the same as in 2018. 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.

Once runners finish they will be funneled into the goody bag area and held there until a parent or guardian is arrives. Runners will be sent repatriation bands to wear on the day along with their race bib.
