Home – Run Jericho

Run Jericho is 10 runs old!

2021 will be the 10th Run Jericho! Over the years, Run Jericho has raised over £100,000 for St Barnabas Primary School. To celebrate the 10th Run Jericho, we are proud to announce a new 5K run, and a new website that we hope you find useful.

Our classic, multi-terrain adult 10K race

Our 10K adult race goes through picturesque surroundings in north Oxford; starting and finishing at St Barnabas Primary School, it takes runners through Jericho, down the Oxford canal, looping around Port Meadow, and passing Wolvercote.

Our all new 5K run

This year will be our first 5K run for over 11s and adults! Our 1 mile fun run has always been popular, and children leaving primary school want to continue running at Run Jericho, so we have added this new distance.

Our ever popular children’s 1 mile fun run

Volunteer and help us make Run Jericho a success!

Run Jericho is an event created by and run by volunteers, and we always need willing helpers. Whether you can spare 30 minutes before the event to mark out the course, spend the morning as a marshal pointing runners in the right direction, or handing out water to tired runners when they return to St Barnabas … every little helps!
