Lots of help is available and it's ideal for newcomers - you can run, jog or just walk around a course.

The courses will take you around the complex streets, paths, alleys and parks of Abingdon. A compass may be handy to bring, but we can always lend you one if needed.

It's great fun - there will be various courses for runners, and also junior and family courses too.

Entry on the day any time from 09.45am to 11.00am. Just turn up and we'll help you choose a suitable course. Race HQ at Abbey Meadows, close to lots of town centre car parks. ���£6 entry on the day for seniors or groups on the shorter courses (1-4k); �£14 for the long courses (up to 8k) and �£5 for juniors.
