Oxford Half Marathon 2013
The new route introduced for 2012 received some great feedback from the runners and will remain the same for 2013, starting near the Kassam Stadium and finishing inside the stadium. Some of the route’s highlights include running through the impressive MINI Plant Oxford, past the Iffley Road Track where Sir Roger Bannister broke the 4 minute mile on 6 May 1954 and the city’s iconic dreaming spires and world famous university college grounds. After crossing Folly Bridge the runners will head south onto the scenic Thames Path before joining Oxford Road and crossing the finish line in the Kassam Stadium.
Entry fees remain the same at £29 for affiliated runners and £31 non-affiliated runners, including a medal, goodie bag and a Brooks technical t-shirt for all finishers. A limited number of 1,500 early bird places are available, offering runners a 10% discount off the entry fee and priority parking on race day.
The UKA licensed route can accommodate up to 6,000 runners, and entries will close as soon as the race limit is reached.
Sir Roger Bannister has pledged his support for the Oxford Half Marathon 2013 again, and following the success of the en route music and entertainment in the 2012 race the organisers will also invite local bands again to play on race day and to contribute to the inspiring race day atmosphere.
The Corporate Challenge will take place and run alongside the Oxford Half Marathon again too.
MINI Plant Oxford has been confirmed as the Headline Sponsor for the 3rd year.
