Longworth Runners

Longworth_runners
Longworth Runners is a very friendly and informal running club.

We meet in front of Longworth Village Hall on Saturday mornings at 9:30 am. We usually choose a route of 5-7 miles. We’re a mixed bunch and pace is anywhere between 8:00 and 9:30 minutes per mile. If you’re a straggler and you don’t know the route then don’t worry, someone will run with you!

In the summer, we like to run mainly off road. Favourite routes include loops that taken in Ten Foot Bridge, Chimney Meadows, Harrowdown Hill and New Bridge. In the winter when it’s too wet for those routes we stick to the road, sometimes heading for Fyfield or towards Charney Basset.

Every year in September we organize a 10k multi-terrain race in aid of HALF. Come and train with us and let us help you prepare for the 10k challenge!

    I took 552 photos of today’s Longworth 10K, some at 0.8K and the rest at 8.9K. The photos are available from: http://www.oxonraces.com/photos

    The photos are free for you to download. However, you put a photo somewhere public (including Facebook), I would like the credit “Photo by Barry Cornelius”. Thanks.
