OSS Event December 2010 (Marston)

14th December 2010 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm


The third race of the Oxford Street-O series will be around the streets of Marston and west Headington and is being planned by Blanka Collis. If you are planning to come, please send me an email by Sunday evening (to both so that we can print the right number of maps AND to order food if you want it (see the Social section below).

Event Centre

The event centre will be the OXSRAD Sports Centre on Marsh Lane, just off the northern by-pass. There is plenty of parking available, alternatively bus 14A (railway station 1835, Magdalen St 1842) stops outside while many other buses will get you to Cherwell Drive which is a short walk away: from railway station and city centre via Marston Rd (13), Abingdon (X13), railway station and city centre via Marston Ferry Rd (14/17A) and Cowley and Headington (U5).

As many of you will know, OXSRAD is the home of Headington Road Runners and we hope to attract some HRR regulars to give street-o a go on roads they probably know very well!

OXSRAD is also a registered charity and the proceeds of this event will be donated to them.

Race Format

60 minute score (visit as many controls as you can and return within 60 minutes). Remember to bring a watch and a pen! A head torch will also be useful as there are a few unlit paths that provide useful route choices. Start times are between 6.30pm and 8pm, starting whenever you’re ready. See About Street-O for a more detailed description.


Largely tarmac roads and paths. Marston is flat but there is a significant hill up towards Headington so the map will have contours. Most roads have a 20mph limit and low traffic levels.


If you can, please stay after you have run to discuss routes, mistakes, the weather or anything else that takes your fancy. We have arranged for food to be provided (probably a bowl of pasta for around £3.50) but this needs to be ordered in advance. If you would like to eat, we need to know by Sunday 12th December, please send an email to There is also a bar.


Results will appear here soon after the event.
