Photographs of the race are available on Barry Cornelius’ web site. Our thanks to him for making these available. If you make use of any of these please credit Barry as noted on his pages.

The Race Programe linked here contains details of the course and parking arrangements.

The race is run on a level and attractive rural course through the country villages of the Vale of the White Horse. Starting from Grove the course follows quiet country lanes through the villages of Denchworth, Lyford and Charney Bassett. The race is chip timed. The format and course of the race has been unchanged in recent years – and is will remain much the same for 2022. The White Horse Half Marathon was voted one of the top 10 races for PB potential on the Runners World website.

The race did not take place in 2020 or 2021 owing to the Coronavirus pandemic although White Horse Harriers did stage a trail event over a similar distance (the Uffington White Horse Gallop) in July 2021.
