There’s just one week to go until the ballot for the biggest sporting event in Oxford’s running calendar closes!

The much-anticipated Oxford Half Marathon returns on Sunday 16th October 2022 with 13,000 runners set to take to the city’s historic streets. Runners have until 20th April to enter the ballot for a chance to secure their place in this oversubscribed race. Alternatively, runners can exclusively bypass the Oxford Half 2022 ballot and save money by purchasing via the Limelight Sports Club Membership Platform.

Runners will take on the flat 13.1 mile route that begins in the city centre and passes through Old Marston village, the River Cherwell, Oxford University’s impressive Lady Margaret Hall, before finally finishing on Parks Road.

Live bands and DJs will keep runners entertained all along the route – no need for headphones! After the race, finishers can kick back and soak up the festival atmosphere in Race Village on Oxford University Parks as they marvel in the beauty of their newly designed medal.
