The Limelight Sport Oxford Half Marathon returns on Sunday 15th October 2023, when the 13.1-mile course will take runners on a picturesque route through the University Parks and along the historic streets of Oxford. As for 2022, participants will be spurred on by thousands of cheering spectators as well as the live entertainment to be found both in the Race Village and stationed at various points along the way.

2022 saw Oxford Health Charity enter a fantastic team of 21 runners in the Oxford Half who not only achieved some amazing personal goals by completing the race, but who also collectively raised over £6200 for the Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust community! To them, we say a HUGE THANK YOU. Looking ahead to 2023, we’re now setting our sights even higher!!

As for every race participant, everyone in the Oxford Health Charity team had their own personal reasons for running. Some wanted to highlight the vital role Oxford Health Charity plays in supporting Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust patients and staff, while others recognised the need to raise greater awareness of mental health services across the Trust. One team member ran to remember a colleague and raise funds to help continue their work, and other teammates decided it was time to give something back to the NHS as a thank you for their help, support and care.

So, why would you run those 13.1 miles?...

A word from Mark –

“Yes, fantastic day. Little stiff this morning. Mad question is, when do we sign up to run for you again in Oxford Half 2023?”
