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 email@example.com 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
