Event Details

Set in Oxfordshire’s beautiful Cherwell Valley, this deserted Cold War airbase opens its gates for a challenging weekend of running and cycling.

Enter the duathlon on Saturday 19th June and run, bike, run your way to the finish line over a Standard, Sprint or Super Sprint distance.

On Sunday 20th June the Half Marathon, 10K, 5K and Family Mile will see you flying around the airfield like the buzzards that now rule the idle landing strips.

With over 100 years of history this formidable site will capture your imagination – watch out for props from Hollywood blockbuster World War Z which was filmed at the base, although an encounter with an escaped zombie is sure to get you a PB!

Pancake-flat, traffic-free and with the wind at your back, you’ll bomb along the runway and taxiways of one of the oldest airfields in the world at the Heyford Airbase Duathlon and Runway Races.
