Road races take place throughout the year, catering mainly for senior and veteran men and women. But there are also very popular road relay races for junior athletes, notably the Oxfordshire Road Relays, SEAA and National Road Relays, where there has generally been a large OCAC representation across all age groups in recent years. The club competes in most of the major Road Relay events, often also entering ‘B’ and ‘C’ teams to cater for all standards; our veteran teams in particular have been very successful at National level over the past 16 years. The Club organises one major road race each year, the Hanney 5. The race is held over a rural course, which is a well- marshalled easy-to-follow single lap race of five miles finishing on the sports field behind the Hanney Village Hall.
If you are interested in joining a training group to improve your Road Running then you should consult our coaching and training pages to see which of our training groups or coaches might suit your needs. If you are interested in joining the club to take part in Road Running Races then you may also want to make contact with one of the Team Managers responsible for road relays.
