Heyford Park Airbase Races - Half Marathon, 10k, 5k & Junior Races

11th June 2017

 Run the Heyford Park Airbase Races - fast, flat, fantastic!  

Get an insight into what went on 'Behind the Wire' at Oxfordshire's most formidable Cold War Airbase.  See travel writer & photographer Darmon Richter's blog here!

Set in the beautiful Cherwell Valley countryside, the three routes all utilise the base's Runway, RAF Taxiway & NATO Taxiway and are therefore pancake flat, traffic-free and pretty much PB guaranteed!

Choose between the 5k, 10k or Half Marathon - equally good for those venturing into racing, moving up a distance or just trying to improve times.


"I had a fantastic day, even though I do a race every week this race stands out as something different, unique environment, it was worth the 120 mile round trip, can't wait for next year, excellent detailed planning as always with Purple Patch and the individual names on each race number was a nice touch"

"Thanks for organising a great race yesterday. I really enjoyed it and getting a massive PB always helps! Please pass on my thanks to everyone who helped organise and especially to all of the friendly and supportive marshals!"

"Fabulous event and a pb for me, thank you!!"
