Enter the duathlon and ‘run, bike, run’ your way to the finish line over the Standard (Olympic) distance; or run our Half Marathon, 10K, 5K or Family Mile and fly 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. Look out for props from Hollywood blockbuster World War Z, which was filmed at the base; 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 runways and taxiways of one of the oldest airfields in the world at the Heyford Airbase Duathlon and Runway Races.
