Exeter team to compete in the Town and Gown Fun Run in May

Written by Philip Munday

On Sunday 18th May 2008, The Oxford Town and Gown 10K Fun Run will take place.

This is a fun run of approximately 6 miles and is open to anyone. The route is literally on our doorstep. It starts and finishes in the University Parks, and passes Keble, St John’s, Exeter, Balliol, Trinity and Wadham Colleges before a leisurely stroll along the banks of the Cherwell.

Last year we entered a team of 24 (see picture) and I would like to enter another Exeter College team this year. The emphasis is on this being a fun run, so it is open to those with little or no running experience, but also to those who are looking for a good race time. It is also an opportunity to raise money for Muscular Dystrophy.

There is also a College trophy for the college that raised the most money. We won this in 2006, but Jesus College took it from us last year!

If you would like to join the team on Sunday 18th May, or just find out more, then please call Philip Munday in the Bursary on 279653 or e-mail me.

There is also a website for the race and you can register online, putting Exeter College as the Team name. (Please tell me if you register in this way).

This Fun Run is open to anyone connected with the college.

I look forward to hearing from you
