Did the race in 2022
Great atmosphere and wonderful spectators cheering all the way!
Did the race in 2022
It is a great run. Really we organised and a lovely course. Let do2n by the rubbish goodie bag and lack of t-shirt given the cost. Very expensive run. Virgin used to give a great t shirt in the goodie bag. Medals aren't great either.
Did the race in 2022
Very lucky to enjoy perfect weather conditions, making it easier to run, especially as lots of spectators had come out to enjoy the autumn sunshine
Did the race in 2022
It was really excellent. A flat course, scenic, great local support cheering us on. Two quibbles: a water station before 5 miles, that was a long wait. And the "goodie" bag??? Seriously, a canvas bag and one single energy bar? That's a pitiful goodie. bag. And no T-shirt for the price, either.
Did the race in 2022
This was my first half marathon and I really enjoyed it, good course and wonderful support. My only negative would be being dictated to to be vegetarian, that was a shame and not needed
Did the race in 2022
Would have been nice to recieve a T-shirt as a finisher gift.
Did the race in 2022
A very enjoyable and generally flat course going through the city of Oxford. Nice views and great spectators support. Course is generally well organised all the necessary facilities are there. It felt however a bit pricy this time given that not T-shirts were available and photos are on the money only option.
Did the race in 2022
Great event, would definitely recommend

Need more toilets in the race village
