We’re looking for runners to join Team OY for the Virgin Sport Oxford Half Marathon 2019!

Oxfordshire Youth have free charity places available for this year’s Virgin Sport Oxford Half Marathon, taking place on Sunday 13 October 2019.

The fast and flat 13.1 mile route kicks off from Oxford City Centre, and speeds by world-famous museums, universities, and parks. You’ll dash through historic city streets, cross over the River Cherwell, out into Old Marston, and back past the spectacular University Colleges.

Join us as we pound the pavements of our city, raising money and supporting youth organisations and young people throughout the county – register for a free place and join our team.

This year entry to the race is by ballot so a charity place may be the best way to avoid disappointment. All we ask is you commit to fundraising a minimum of £150 for Oxfordshire Youth.

Whether you’re a first timer, race veteran, or anything in between, we want to share the experience with you. We’ll be on hand to make sure that you’re fully supported in your fundraising, and your training, to give you the best possible experience, as well as being there to cheer you on, on race-day.

If you would like to run for us, or already have a place to run in this event, but would like to join Team OY, please drop us a line and we’ll be in touch to organise your fundraising pack.

You will be helping us provide high-quality services for young people from all walks, equipping them with the skills and resources to positively impact their lives in the future, to find their place in communities and improve their life opportunities.

As part of our team you’ll receive fantastic support from the moment you sign up all the way until your cross that finish line, having run 13.1 miles through our beautiful historic city!
