Have you turned over a new leaf in 2014, determined to regain some former levels of physical fitness through regular walking, jogging or gym work? Or maybe you have always been a keen jogger or runner? If so, you might well be interested in the Oxford 'Town and Gown' 10K road race.
Voted one of the best road races in the UK, the 'Town & Gown' race gives entrants the unique opportunity to run through the closed streets of Oxford city centre, passing historic sites and ending in the beautiful University Parks.
The route is flat and scenic, which makes this event perfect for everyone, including those who want to take to the streets in fancy dress, beginners who have signed up to their first race to the more experienced runners that want to get their personal best. You can even walk the route, if you so choose.
