Terms and Conditions
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.

“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.”
After a year's break, it's back.....with the super help of the Harwell Harriers Running Club
A slightly different start/finish area from past years, but still based within the futuristic site of Harwell Campus.
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 some stunning views of the rolling Oxfordshire countryside.
We are pleased to be supporting BE FREE YC charity this year, who support young carers in Oxfordshire and are based at Harwell Campus.
