Partner with the Bidwells Town and Gown 10k

The Bidwells Town and Gown 10k series is professional, chip-timed and serious fun. Popular events in the Oxford and Cambridge runners’ calendars, this is the runner’s run, raising funds for people living with muscle-wasting conditions.

We believe in:

  • excellence – our award-winning runs are the only closed-road city centre 10k races in Oxford and Cambridge, and they take in beautiful, historic sights.
  • community – we bring students, graduates, club runners and novices together to compete for personal bests or simply to enjoy the bespoke routes.
  • ambition – we give our runners a first-rate experience and involve them in our drive to achieve a fully accessible and sustainable event, and they’re helping achieve our goal of beating muscle-wasting conditions.

Without our fantastic partners, our Bidwells Town and Gown 10k series wouldn't be the same. We'd love to hear from you if you work or have a business in Oxfordshire, Cambridgeshire or a business with national reach. Our sponsorship opportunities help our partners reaching new audiences through excellent exposure throughout the event.
