Two marked walks are available; the 13.1 mile half-marathon distance and a shorter 5 mile walk more suitable for families and younger walkers who may wish to take a gentle stroll with picnic.

Both routes include tracks, public roads and footpaths around Otmoor. Maps of both courses will be available at the Start.

A commemorative badge will be awarded to the first 200 finishers.
