Organizer's website

Join us in the historic market town of Oundle, for the return of the Oundle 20 Mile Road Race in 2020. The 2019 race sold out so an early entry is advised!

The race is ideal for those training for London, Brighton or other Spring marathons and follows a scenic course around the gently undulating wide, quiet country lanes in and around the pretty Norhamptonshire villages of Fotheringay, Nassington, Yarwell and Kings Cliffe, so most definitely pb potential!

Race also includes multiple well stocked aid stations along the route.

The race is a fundraiser for Oundle Primary School organised by Nice Work.

  • Did the 20 Miles in 2019

    Very well organised and friendly event. Tough course made harder by the conditions but a good solid 20 miles and some very encouraging support in the villages. Excellent marathon preparation.
  • Did the 20 Miles in 2019

    Very friendly supportive marshalls .Well organised with adequate drinks stations .I have done this race twice and loved it .
  • Did the 20 Miles in 2019

    A lovely scenic course that offered a good balance of challenge along the route. The volunteers did a great job and there were plenty of water stations and they never felt crowded as we passed them. A couple of improvements would make this an absolutely outstanding event. Firstly, some portable urinals for men would drastically reduce the large queues for the facilities pre-race. Secondly, being able to perhaps ensure some of the side roads were closed as in the last mile I think I nearly ran into an oncoming car when turning a blind corner (thanks to the marshal who warned me of the oncoming car!). All in all though a fabulous down to earth event that I would highly recommend to any runner looking for a 20 mile race in the build up to a spring marathon.
  • Did the 20 Miles in 2019

    Absolutely beautiful (if hilly) course, they ran out of t-shirts in my size but immediately took details and offered to order the right size for me which other races just say tough! Marshals amazing and plenty of water stops. I will be back
  • Did the 20 Miles in 2019

    I was disappointed to not receive my finishers t-shirt in spite of being asked for my size the week before. I hope that this will be posted out in the correct size soon. I also felt it was rather misleading to call one chocolate bar a goodie bag. The marshals on the course were supportive on the whole but there were not enough and a friend who got into difficulty was told she needed to wait for the sweeper vehicle which does not seem a good solution. She eventually got help from the next water station. Would be nice to be told the elevation in advance as 'undulating' did not really cover what I was expecting!
  • Did the 20 Miles in 2019

    Fantastic small event with great organisation, beautiful undulating course and plenty of water stations. Will definitely do it again if it fits into marathon plans or even as a stand-alone event.
  • Did the 20 Miles in 2019

    Fab well organised run but I do think there should have been a few more Marshalls there were a few places where i wasn't sure where I was going ..but I'd run it again
  • Did the 20 Miles in 2019

    Well organised and lovely atmosphere! Aid stations were well stocked and marshals were lovely. My only criticism would be lack of toilets and parking. This needs working on for future races. I thoroughly enjoyed my day!
  • Did the 20 Miles in 2019

    By far the most picturesque 20 mile race throughout my short but accomplished running career. Having participated in the Valentines 30k and the Oakley 20, this is a race that stands shoulder to shoulder with them, with perhaps fewer incline but a far more interesting route. Shame about my race time.
  • Did the 20 Miles in 2019

    Excellent race, I live in Oundle so to have this race on my doorstep is amazing, This is the second year I have run the race and I have already signed up for next year hope this race grows and goes from strength to strength.

    Is the race pack sent out in advance or should I allow time to collect race pack and attach race number on the day?


    Steph E21st Feb
    Hi there. Just to let you know that you will collect your race pack the morning of the race at registration. We advise arriving 30-45minutes before the race so that you have plenty of time for this. Best of luck!


    Steph E21st Feb
    Hi there. All race packs are dispatched around two weeks before race day. Any entries received after the two week cut off will be available to collect on the day. Good luck!

    Hi I’ve just got home after running today. I was given a medal at the end but not a t-shirt. Were these not available or was I supposed to find them somewhere? I’m a bit gutted as I love collecting the t-shirts. Is there any way I can get one sent to me please? Thanks, Russell Tapping


    Steph E19th Mar
    Hi there. So sorry to hear you missed out on the t-shirt, they were available for collection at the registration desk. Please could you send us an email with your details to [email protected] - and we can try and get one sent to you! Thanks
