What is it?

Mota-vation is a series of 5 road races held on Thursday evenings, once per month over the summer. The races are chip timed and each about 4 miles long. They are suitable for any club member of any pace, and because so many of our members enter they replace our usual Thursday evening club runs.

Where does it take place?

The Mota-vation races take place in different villages around Oxfordshire, mostly on country lanes.

How do I enter?

The club submits a bulk entry in early April for all members who wish to take part in the Mota-vation series. Look out for details via club communications including the registration form. There is a small entry fee for the series, but our bulk entry comes with a substantial discount, so it’s a bargain! The organisers may allow entries to individual races later on in the series, and again members will be emailed if/when that option becomes available.

What do I need?

You need to have entered the series, and you will need to run in a club vest or t-shirt. For this or any other kit enquires contact the Kit Secretary.

What if I haven’t entered?

Unfortunately entry to the first part of the series must be made in advance. If you haven’t entered, or cannot run for any other reason, then the club does have to provide marshals in return for our heavily discounted entry fee – do consider marshalling if you can help out! Entries to later races may become available on the day.

Our usual Thursday evening club run doesn’t take place on Mota-vation evenings, but obviously members are very welcome to organise their own informal runs.
