Welcome to Oxford University Cross-Country Club, one of the University’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 terms we focus on cross-country, while in Trinity Term we join with our sister club, Oxford University Athletics Club (OUAC) and compete on the track. Highlights of the club year include our Varsity Match against Cambridge, BUCS (British University and College Sports) Cross-Country Championships and inter-university relays. These fixtures are open to all, whether you are aiming for a Full Blue or a fun day out.

OUCCC is proudly sponsored by Neptune Investment Management.

OUCCC Pre-season Training Camp 2019

Definitely one of the highlights of the OUCCC year is the club’s annual Pre-season September Training Camp, taking place this year at the Minehead Youth Hostel, just within Exmoor National Park, between Thursday 26th September and Tuesday 1st October (5 nights). Price should be in the region of £80-90 and you can secure your spot by paying the £30 deposit. Please see the attached document at the bottom of the page for further information

FRESHERS ARE VERY WELCOME ON TRAINING CAMP! Whether you are new to the club, new to Oxford, new to running, or new (or old) to any combination of the three, you are actively encouraged to get involved. No need to pay the deposit until after Results Day. If you’d like to put your name down to come, or have any questions, please get in touch with Club Captain, Tim Harrison, at: timothy.harrison@keble.ox.ac.uk

OUCCC at the Oxford University Open Day – TASTER SESSION

At the Oxford University Open Day on Wednesday 3rd July OUCCC will be training at the Iffley Road track with the warm-up starting at 1pm for a 1:30pm session start. If you are in Oxford for the Open Day and would like to come and join in for all or part of the session, or even just come and watch, we’d love to see you!

We will be hanging around after the session for refreshments and to answer any questions anyone may have about the club, training and competing for OUCCC/OUAC. Our club coach, Kyle Bennett, will also be in attendance so you can chat to him too.

We look forward to meeting and hopefully convincing you that Oxford is the best place for you, both athletically and academically.
