Oxford, England, UK
Distance: Half Marathon
Offical Race Web Site

We're happy to announce that the Oxford Half is now the Virgin Sport Oxford Half Marathon! Check out #VSHackney on social to see how we do things a bit differently.

The Route: Oxford’s glorious city centre route kicks it off on Broad Street, starting you off on the right foot near Trinity College and the Clarendon Building.

Once you pass through the charming village of Old Marston, you’ll cross the River Cherwell and whip back around to Oxford University’s impressive Lady Margaret Hall, and then right again onto Norham Gardens.

Finish strong back into City Centre, through Radcliffe Square and into the final stretch of the stunning Radcliffe Camera.

Richard Martin
A good race with plenty of local support and nice running weather. However, considering the entry fee is more expensive than the London marathon, the goody bag was a REAL let down; one cloth bag and a protein! It didn't even include a finishers' shirt (but you could buy one for £24 of course!). Limelight/Virgin need to shape up, or people will give this a miss in future.

Great to be back racing & this was a decent route with plenty of local support. A good medal but no goodie bag at the end and a real disappointment that no finishers t shirt was given out?
