We look forward to seeing you next year at
The 39th Annual Otmoor Challenge
Half-Marathon Run 2:00pm


Pre-entry is not required by those wishing to take part in the Otmoor Challenge Walk. Registration and first starts for walkers are from 9.00am, with last starts at 12 noon.

The walk starts and finishes on the playing field at the Millennium Hall in Horton cum Studley (OX33 1AE), where free parking is available and the village fete provides refreshments, a licensed bar, entertainments and stalls. Toilets are available in the Millennium Hall.

Two marked walks are available; the 13.1 mile half-marathon distance, which largely follows the route that the runners will take in the afternoon, 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 the courses are available at the Start, and water and first aid are available around the long course.
A commemorative badge is awarded to all finishers.

Dogs are welcome, but must be kept under control at all times. Owners are responsible for picking up and disposing of dog mess in appropriate bins.

Entry fees for walkers (for both courses) are:

  • Adults and children over 13 = £5
  • Children 6-12 = £3
  • Children 5 and under = Free
All walkers must pay an entry fee on the day.

The Otmoor Challenge Association encourages walkers to gain sponsorship for their favourite charities. However, the Association does not organise sponsorship on behalf of walkers, nor accepts sponsorship in lieu of the appropriate entry fee. Walkers should collect their own sponsorship funds and pass them direct to the charity concerned.
