Headington 5 mile.

We were trying to achieve our four different distances for club award without having to extend ourselves to a marathon or half! 5 mile races seem to be few and far apart, but we managed to find this one and only in Oxford.
An excellent flat course (120 ft climb), well sign posted and with ample marshals. Headington Road Runners are very friendly hosts. The organisation was good and with only about 250 entrants, the start through winding streets was no problem. After both of us achieving PBs the range of cakes on sale took us nearly as long to decide which to have. The range of freebies at the finish was also a treat with the usual drinks and snacks, but also included trainer fresheners and we even got a commemorative mug!

If you are looking for a fast 5 mile run next year then sign up for this one, I highly recommend it.
