2021 White Horse Half Marathon.
The 2021 White Horse Half Marathon had a provisional date of Sunday 11 April. Sadly, we will not be able to run the race on that date. We are currently in Covid-19 lockdown conditions and we don’t know when and how the restrictions will be lifted. This presents too many uncertainties to proceed with the provisional date. We hope to run the 2021 White Horse Half Marathon later in the year but cannot say at present whether that will be practical or what alternative date might be chosen. We will provide another update in due course.
To maximise our donation and reduce unnecessary waste, we are keeping the 2020 Half Marathon trophies and mugs for use in the 2021 event. As such, they will form part of the costing of the 2021 event. We recognise that they will have 2020 markings on them but we are sure that the 2021 race entrants will understand the very unusual circumstances. We intend to run an early booking window for 2020 entrants. As per the previous paragraph – we do not yet know when we will next be able to hold the White Horse Half Marathon.
The 2020 race was due to be both an Oxfordshire County Championship and is part of the Oxfordshire Grand Prix series. The Race Licence number was: 2020-39438.

We Acknowledge Support for this Race from
Local Specialists in Sports Therapy and Physiotherapy
Local Shop for all things sporting (including running).
We also wish to thank Standbrook Guides for permission to make use of their maps.
In the recent past we have donated a share of the profits from this race to local charities. We are now working with a local school on plans to install and upgrade athletics facilities which our athletes will be able to make use of. We have made a conscious decision not to nominate a local charity this year but to put funds raised by the 2020 race towards these facilities (as was also done for the 2019 race).
