Competing in a sponsored sports event is a great way to support Oxfordshire Mind, and we’re incredibly grateful to those who choose to do so.

As part of #TeamOxMind, you’ll receive lots of support, from training and fundraising tips to a friendly face when you cross the finishing line!

Whether a seasoned runner or a newbie to the race, join us for a weekend of celebrations and run in the city of dreaming spires.

“An amazing experience for such a fantastic cause. Can’t explain the feeling I got when finishing knowing I raised a lot of money for people like me who have and are struggling. I commend Oxfordshire mind for their fantastic work they do.”
