About this event

The Oxford Half Marathon is the largest route outside of London that has chosen to go plastic free. Here at the RSPCA, we've made changes to reduce our impact on the environment too with RSPCA running vests made from recycled plastic bottles and no more single-use plastics at our cheer stations.

Charity places

Join us for this popular half marathon through the historic streets of Oxford with a guaranteed charity place. Make your running count and help us rescue more injured, abandoned and abused animals across England and Wales.
