Welcome to the Oxford University Cross Country Club – one of the most welcoming and inclusive of all of Oxford’s ‘Full Blue’ sports. OUCCC caters for those who just like to run socially to athletes competing at a national and international level.
In Michaelmas and Hilary we focus on cross-country, while in Trinity we join with our sister club OUAC and compete on the track (over middle distance, long distance and steeplechase). Highlights of the club year include our Varsity match against Cambridge, BUCS (British University and College Sports) Cross-Country Championships and inter-university relays. All these competitions are open for anyone of any level to compete in, whether you are aiming for a Full Blue or a fun day out!
As well as a committee of keen and enthusiastic students running the club, we have a fabulous coaching team, keen to help athletes at every level make improvements. Head coach is Jenny Harris, lead coach from England Athletics and she is supported by club veteran and varsity winner Richard Franzese.
So if you fancy meeting a great group of people, competing for an historic club and having a lot of fun, come along to a training session and give it a go. You will get to know your way around Oxford better than anyone else through our club runs, fully understand the importance of always finishing ahead of Cambridge and maybe even pick up some silverware en-route. See you there!
