UPDATED 19 AUGUST 2017
The Harwell Half Marathon will not be happening as planned on Monday 28 August due to significantly low entry numbers 9 days prior to the event making the event unforuntanetly un-financially viable.
We are as sad as you to cancel this event as it really is stunning, but unfortunately we have costs to cover and commit to prior to the event and cannot afford to run this event at a loss.
Why not check out our RARE 5km/10km at the same venue on Sunday 8 October 2017 instead.
Thanks for understanding
“I have done many half marathons over the years and this is definitely my favourite one!!!
It ticks all the boxes. I couldn’t fault it, the marshals were super, it was well organised, a beautiful route and so, so friendly. The directions and parking were perfect too.”
It’s back again due to popular demand…..
BANK HOLIDAY MONDAY, 28 AUGUST 2017
13.1 miles — 10am
The route starts off flat and then gently undulates along footpaths, bridleways, and tracks up onto the Ridgeway National Path from where you can enjoy some stunning views of the rolling Oxfordshire countryside.
Altogether a better way to spend a Bank Holiday Monday!
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.
Great events mean plenty of volunteers and we make sure ours are looked after VERY well. If you are interested in volunteering at an event – whether it be for race registration, course marshaling or handing out medals – we would love to hear from you, contact us here

Subject to our cancellation policy and consistent with other organisations, there is a need to protect the staging of this event and the resultant costs incurred by the event organiser. Before any entries are accepted, events start to incur costs which places the organiser at risk. The organiser is forced to recoup costs to ensure the event's ongoing success. Failure to do so has predictable results. From the moment you enter this event further costs are created therefore there are no cancellation reimbursements or refunds.
