Oxford Parkrun

Who's making it happen


We aim to set up a core group of volunteers to take on the project and set up a parkrun.

Parkrun is a free weekly 5km in a park or green space. Our aim is to set one up in University Parks delivered in partnership with Oxford University Sport, students and the local community. 

We're currently looking for volunteers (various roles and commitment levels available) to help make University Parks Parkrun a reality! Get involved and register your interest here


We have set up a project working group with students and Oxford University Sport.

We have submitted our initial application to University Parks, we have secured the support for the event from a range of community partners and continue to recruit volunteers to lead the event.

We have received initial feedback from University Parks and are now working to develop plans with Parkrun including training for the volunteers and securing the financial support required to hopefully launch the event in Autumn 2021.

We have now met with University Parks who have requested some updated route maps and safety plans. Alongside working on these documents we are currently working on securing the required funding to launch the project and securing a core team of regular volunteers.
