OUCCC caters for athletes of all levels and everyone is welcome to come and train with us. We provide the training set-up and support necessary for everyone - from beginners to those competing at a national or even international level. Regardless of your previous running experience, we’d love you to join our team and be part of the next generation of Oxford Cross Country athletes.
We’re aware that with how hectic Michaelmas always is, some students don’t find time to join the clubs they want to. Fortunately, OUCCC is easy to join all year! Our social runs provide the perfect way to meet new people and fulfil a new year’s resolution at the same time. We’re also rerunning our 3 week trial period in Hilary, so that you can see what we have to offer before committing to a membership. There really is no reason not to give it a go! If you have any questions, feel free to message us on our Instagram.
The main goal of the club is to beat Cambridge at Varsity in Michaelmas. We session on Wednesday and Saturday, with long run on Sunday and club runs on Tuesday and Thursday. However, if you are new to running or competitive running is not your thing then we also have a social running group that you can join here:
Beyond high quality training and competition, we have a huge amount to offer as a club - from a vibrant social scene to preseason training camp in September. Many members make long lasting friendships here and create memories that last a lifetime. If you have any questions about joining OUCCC or our training set up you can also get in touch with our Captains.
It is worth noting that after third week Michaelmas, everyone having made the decision to join OUCCC and consistently training with the club must have filled out the membership form and paid their subs. For any membership queries please email our Secretary and copy in the OUAC.
