All race distances will start from within the futuristic site of Harwell Campus and the Half Marathon will be a mixed terrain route with some gentle undulations along footpaths, bridleways and tracks meandering up onto the Ridgeway National Path from where you can enjoy stunning views of the rolling Oxfordshire countryside before returning to the Campus for the finish.

The 5Kms and Kids Mini-Mile will take in some of the Campus highlights including the Diamond Light Source. For anyone looking for a fast and flat race to achieve a new personal best – this is the one for you!

The courses will be clearly marked with plenty of marshalls for encouragement and water stations will be available subject to Covid-19 restrictions at the time of the event.

Depending upon any Covid-19 restrictions on the race date we may implement changes to ensure everyone’s safety.

No headphones to be worn at any time during the event — this is for your own safety and the safety of other competitors. We will disqualify any competitor we find wearing headphones.
