What is Oxford Half Marathon?


The Virgin Sport Oxford Half Marathon is a fast, flat 13.1 mile route that showcases everything we love about Oxford. This is a fantastic challenge for both beginners as well as more experienced runners starting right in the heart of Oxford. The marathon is going to take you past Oxford’s most popular landmarks such as Radcliffe Camera, the Sheldonian Theatre, the Bodleian Library, and many of the Oxford University’s world-famous colleges.

Why should you put on your racing shoes for Helen & Douglas House?


Your participation in the Oxford Half Marathon 2017 is going to make a real difference to us - we care for terminally ill children, young adults and their families through exceptional hospice care. It costs over £5.5m a year to run the two hospice houses and provide our outreach nursing service, we cannot do this without your help!


We provide medical, emotional and practical support helping families deal with the implications of living with a child who will die prematurely, so they can make the most of their time together. Join in the Oxford Half Marathon 2017 and make a difference!
