Oxford Town and Gown 10k

The Oxford Town and Gown is the oldest run in our Town and Gown series. It started in 1982 as a fun run and 2024 will see the event head into its 42nd year. All profits from the race go towards our vital work.

The event attracts up to 6,000 runners every year – including serious athletes, fun runners, schools and club runners. The closed-road route takes you through Oxford's historic city centre and finishes in University Parks.

This route is unique and scenic, which makes it perfect for all runners. You’ll find beginners taking on their first 10k race, and more experienced runners hoping to beat their personal bests.

If you’re wanting to run your first, your fastest or your most orange 10k yet – this is the race for you. Let's come together to raise money and change the future for muscle wasting conditions.
