About Run Oxford

Oxford MS Runners, also known as Run Oxford, is a community organized running group. Our goal is to provide a space for runners of all paces to find a safe, comfortable running environment whether their goals are to run a 5k for the first time, qualify for the Boston Marathon, or anything in between.

We offer several weekly group runs of various distances. We also encourage runners to use our Facebook page as a community forum to post relevant information about running or races, ask questions, and meet other runners. Click here to visit our website for a full calendar and more information.

First started in 2013 from a grant from the University of Mississippi and the support of the Oxford Park Commission, Run Oxford's Board of Directors currently includes Marvin King (President), Jill Knight (Vice-President), Nathan Hammer (Secretary), and Ed Dean (Treasurer).

Run Oxford recently held the Mighty Half and 5k presented by Rebel Well | Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi Foundation on February 20, 2016. Over 500 runners participated and this event served to bring back a half marathon to Oxford, MS.
