Oxford Half Sold Out

Oxford Half Marathon competitor

The Vitality Oxford Half Marathon has sold out of general entries for the first time since the race was launched four years ago, organisers have announced.

The race, which takes place on Sunday 12 October, saw entries pick up to between 350 and 450 per week throughout the last month.

Andrew Taylor, Race Director at the Vitality Oxford Half Marathon commented: “We have seen a flurry of entries over recent weeks, resulting in all 6,000 available places for the half marathon selling out, but those who have missed out still have another chance to sign up through our charity places.

“I would urge those wanting to take advantage of these final few places to act quickly to avoid disappointment as the remaining charity places will become hot property now that general entries have sold out.”

Many charities still have reserved places available for the half marathon, including the lead charity for this year’s event – Oxfam, the official local charity – Helen & Douglas House, and the series charity – Laureus for Good Foundation.
