Before you enter The Otmoor Challenge

The Otmoor Challenge has been running for over 40 years and raises funds for local charities, organisations and causes such as the village church, Beckley C of E School, local interest groups,youth groups and village hall.

The half-marathon route consists of 6 miles of quiet country roads and just over 7 miles of off-road sections including stiles, fields, footpaths and bridleways, and one demanding hill at the 10 mile point at Beckley. The route circumnavigates Otmoor, a large RSPB conservation area, via 7 villages - historically described as "The Seven Towns of Otmoor".
The course is well marked with direction signs throughout.

Run Start is 10am 11th June. Registration will close at 9.30am

The Otmoor Challenge has been taken offline by the event organiser. For further information please contact the event organiser directly.
