In short: Comments from Headington 5 race organisers In full: Thank you to all runners who participated in the Headington 5. Unfortunately the race took a wrong turning because of a specific error and ended up being about 4.4 miles long rather than the advertised 5 miles. As the race organisers we very much regret this error and will learn from it.
As stated by the race referee at the presentation we will give a full refund to anyone who feels this is appropriate. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to follow this up. We are sorry that Steve Burns was misinformed and will be in touch with him.
Despite what happened, we have also received positive feedback from a number of runners who enjoyed the race
In short: What a joke, the cycling marshal got lost, he and the front of the field had to do a U turn In full: I didn't mind too much that the course was short but after running further than most of the field due to the cycling marshal taking a wrong turn and then doing a U turn.I asked for a refund of my entry fee which was refused.

In short: What a farce! In full: Would have been quick & respectable if not a little dull if the race had actually been 5 miles! The entire field was sent the wrong route making it more like 4.5 miles. what a poor job, I certainly will never enter another race organised by Headington RR again Date of review: September 1, 2013
