One of Thame’s largest mass participation sports events with over 1000 entrants taking part. CPM have been sponsoring the event since 1994. The race attracts a wide range of runners from top runners in Oxfordshire competing in the Grand Prix series to many local residents who take part as personal challenge or to raise money for their personal good causes.
Update March 2021 – The organising committee felt that running the race in June 2021 would still be doubtful for the event to take place safely for all runners. We felt that Sunday 5th September 2021 would be a much safer date for our event. This is now confirmed and new entries are open on the Run Britain site to join the 297 deferred entrants from last year’s race. While we hope to be able to field the full 1000 entrants on the day, for the moment we will stop taking new entries when this year’s total is 600. We would then aim to open up to a further 200 or 400 more based on advice from England Athletics and general safety guidelines.
