Heyford Air Base Half Marathon, 10k & 5k & Junior Race
Set in the beautiful Cherwell Valley countryside, the routes all utilise the base's Runway, RAF taxiway and NATO taxiway and are therefore pancake flat, traffic-free and pretty much PB guaranteed!
As well as a Junior race, you can choose between the 5k, 10k or Half Marathon - all equally good for those venturing into racing, moving up a distance or just trying to improve times. Something for the whole family and a safe environment for spectators with refreshments and plenty of history around you!
