Partner with the Town and Gown 10k

Muscular Dystrophy UK’s 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 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. Complete our quick form at the bottom of this page and we will give you all the information you need to become an official partner of the race series.
