Heyford Airbase - 5K, 10K, Half Marathon & Junior Race - June

Fast, flat, fantastic! Choice of half marathon, 10k, 5k. Set in the beautiful Cherwell Valley countryside, the three routes all utilise the Heyford Park Airbase's Runway, RAF Taxiway & NATO Taxiway and are therefore pancake flat and traffic-free. These races are timed perfectly if you are planning to run a Spring marathon, but equally good for those venturing into racing, moving up a distance or just trying to improve times.

What you need to know about 5k Runs

A 5k run is the perfect distance for a beginner, it’s 3.1 miles and is the shortest and most popular road running distance. It’s a great goal to include in your fitness regime because there’s no pressure, people walk, jog or sprint so it’s totally up to you.

Find local 5k running races

There are loads of great 5k events, they tend to attract a great crowd and are very family orientated. From runs around the London Parks, to night runs and family events, you won’t be short of 5ks to choose from. Most marathon events such as London or Berlin have a 10k and a 5k race as well so it’s worth checking the larger events.
