The Emmer Green 5K, 10K and mini-oak challenge will be held on Sunday 30th June 2024. The events organised to raise vital funds for Emmer Green Primary School.

Starting and finishing at Emmer Green Primary School, the 10k chip timed run is a multi-terrain course along quiet country lanes and footpaths through the beautiful South Oxfordshire countryside.

The 5K chip timed run follows the same multi-terrain course set for the 10K until the 3km mark, where the course splits, taking 5K runners along a quiet lane and public footpath before re-joining the 10K course just before the 9km mark.

The mini-oak challenge, enables those under 12 to take part, running or walking as
many (or as few) laps of the school field as they would like *.

We are always in need of volunteers to help with marshalling, if you would like to get involved (or have a willing, non-running partner/friend) please do get in touch through the ‘contact us’ page.

* This will be capped at 33 laps of Emmer Green school field
