05 July 2017 - Oxford Half Marathon Returns!

Following the success of the 2016 & 2017 events, the Virgin Sport Oxford Half Marathon returns to the city on Sunday 8th October 2017 and African Children's Fund is delighted to have once again secured six charity places for the event.



We are looking for existing or would-be runners to represent #TeamACF on the streets of Oxford.

Why join #TeamACF?

  • * Free charity technical t-shirt for all participants to wear during their training and during the race.
  • * One free coaching session with a British Athletics-qualified running coach in Witney, Oxfordshire (Date TBC) plus pre-race coaching support.
  • * Pre- and post-race meeting point in central Oxford with food and drink provided.
  • * Full fundraising support to help you quickly set-up your online fundraising page, with advice from sign up to race day and beyond!

There is no deposit or registration fee to be paid, and we simply ask that our runners raise at least £100 each in sponsorship.

To take up one of  #TeamACF's charity places, please get in touch and we will send further instructions to you. If you have already signed up directly with Oxford Half Marathon but would still like to represent #TeamACF, we'd also love to have you on board so drop us a line with your address and we'll pop your t-shirt in the post.

African Children's Fund's six places will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis so get in touch to reserve your place today!
