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.
The first major event of the Oxford sporting calendar returns at South Parks!
Score points for your college to be crowned Cuppers Cross Country Champions 2019. Every runner counts, so it pays to bring friends – no matter what your ability!
Trophies will be awarded to the winning college and athlete in each race.
The event is also the first of our two selection races for Varsity Cross Country. Matches will take place on the 30th of November (IInds – IVths, including the Mob Match where anyone can compete!) followed by Blues Varsity on the 7th of December.

Come join us to detox at the end of Freshers Week for our annual Freshers Run. We will be meeting at the Radcam at 4pm for runs of either 2,3 or 4 miles for all abilities and paces. Afterwards we will have lots of cake and refreshments and a chance to chat further with club members about OUCCC.
We hope to see as many of you there as possible! Please see the Facebook event for more details.
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: email@example.com
