About Headington RoadRunners
Headington RoadRunners was formed in Oxford in 1988 by an enthusiastic group of runners. The club is built firmly around its members, our motto being Running Together. This reflects both our style of runs and the friendly social nature of the club. The aim of the club is to encourage and support its members with all their running aims.
If you live in Oxford or you are just visiting, why not come along and try us?. Our membership currently stands at over 300, from 18 to over 70 years of age and from those that are faster and keen on racing to those that are slower and less competitive.
Our club base is the OXSRAD Leisure Centre. The postal address is:
Court Place Farm,

Situated on the outskirts of NE Oxford, this allows us great access to the surrounding countryside of Otmoor as well as to the streets, paths and spires of the historic city of Oxford.
At OXSRAD, we have a club noticeboard with details of the club's current events, a collection of entry forms for local races, coaching and club information and club running gear is usually available for purchase here on Thursday nights
There are changing and showering facilities as well as a snack-bar and licensed bar for relaxing after your run.
Members are not expected to come to all of the training sessions, but most make it along on a Thursday evening to catch up with club-mates or pick up their monthly Newsletter.
