Oxford Half 2022

With Oxford Half marathon just weeks away, here’s a breakdown of all the info you need ahead of race day on Sunday 16 October.

The much-anticipated Oxford Half Marathon returns on Sunday 16 October 2022 with thousands of runners set to take to the city’s historic streets and raise money for 49 national and local charities including Cancer Research UK.

Founded in 2010, Oxford Half has become a firm favourite in the UK sporting calendar. Runners will take on the flat 13.1 mile route ​​that winds through Central Oxford, past ivory towers and magnificent spires. Across the River Cherwell and through the pristine parks and

countryside before looping around Old Marston Village. All with music at every mile, followed by fun in Event Village with live music, stretch sessions, and local market traders!

Roads will begin closing from 06:00 on race day with most affected roads closing at 08:00. Roads will be reopened as runners complete each section of the route, with all roads reopened by 18:00.



After wishing runners luck and waving them off the start line, spectators are invited to grab a cuppa in the Race Village and make their way to Fan Hub 1 on Parks Road - come out of the Race Village and follow the music from the DJ! Make sure you keep an eye on the app so you don’t miss your runner! You’ll be able to see them twice at this location - once at mile 0.75 and once just after mile 2.25.


Once you’ve given your runner an almighty cheer, make your way back the way you came, through the Race Village and head to the North East corner of the park where you will be able to catch them again at around the 11.5 mile mark. Again, follow the sound of the DJ. The distance you will need to cover is about 750m and the fasted runners will take about 45 minutes - plenty of time to get there!
