Heyford Park Half Marathon, 10K, 5K, & Junior Races
The second year of this instantly popular set of races will see last year's finishers returning to better their PBs and will welcome anyone who is new to the events - with 3 distances to choose from (5k, 10k, half marathon), as well as races for children, there is something for everyone at Heyford Park.
These events are perfect for anyone stepping up in distance, preparing for a longer event, or wanting to test themselves and their PBs on a flat, fast course. The three routes all utilise the base's runway and RAF and NATO taxiways, and are therefore pancake flat and traffic-free, and pretty much PB-guaranteed!
At the unique historical venue of RAF Upper Heyford, you can get an insight into what went on 'Behind the Wire'. Check out the link on our website to The Bohemian Blog to get a feel for the airbase. Although surrounded by the beautiful Cherwell Valley countryside, this was nevertheless Oxfordshire's most formidable Cold War Airbase.
