Walk Oxford powered by UHY Ross Brooke Chartered Accountants

Thanks to UHY Ross Brooke Chartered Accountants, Walk Oxford is coming back bigger and better for 2024. There will be three routes, approximately 10, 17 & 23 miles taking in historic Oxford and the Oxfordshire countryside.

The Walk Oxford short route heads south, following the river in the main, as far as Sandford-on-Thames. The medium route completes the 10 mile loop of the short route and then continues north along the river as far as Godstow before returning alongside the Oxford Canal. The long route sets off south with the short route but continues south following Shakespeares Way and then the Oxford Green Belt Way as far as Abingdon Lock, before returning north following the Thames.

All Walk Oxford participants will be provided with a route map containing information on local history and all walkers will receive a medal and food at the end of the walk.

The event may appeal to:

🔘 Corporate and Charity teams
🔘 Groups of friends and families or individuals keen to take on the challenge
🔘 School teams

🐕 Dogs are encouraged! 🐕
