Heyford Park Airbase Races (HM, 10k, 5k, Jnr Races)

The 2nd year of this instantly popular set of races will see 2016’s finishers returning to better their PBs & will welcome anyone who is new to the events – with 3 distances to choose from (5k, 10k, HM), as well as races for children, there is something for everyone at Heyford Park. These events are perfect for anyone stepping up in distance, preparing for a longer event, or wanting to test themselves and their PBs on a flat, fast course.
