About the Race for Life Oxford 5k & 10K 2019
Join thousands of people uniting with one purpose - to raise valuable funds for life-saving research.
This is a 5k run for everyone. The Oxford route begins in the scenic University Parks, where you will head out onto the historic streets of Oxford. The entire route is flat and mainly on pathways or road. Heading down Longwall Street, High Street, then proceeding under the Bridge of Sighs and along Parks Road, you will then re-enter the Park at Norham Gardens and finish your event to cheers outside the cricket clubhouse.
The 10k run is a great step up from our 5k events, that's still achievable for everyone. The Oxford 10k route starts by taking the usual 5k route around the Park and City Centre's road and historic landmarks and then splits off for an extra 5k. The extra 5k distance takes in the scenery of the countryside, college sports grounds, and riverside, and then returns back into University Parks for the finish by the cricket pavilion.
For both races, the start and finish point is in the University Park sports field next to the cricket pavilion.
Friends and family are welcomed at the Race for Life Oxford 5k & 10K 2019 event. They can stroll around the stalls selling tasty food and drinks, be inspired by the amazing atmosphere of the event, and then cheer the runners on as they take on the event.
