The race is run on a level and attractive rural course through the country villages of the Vale of the White Horse. Starting from Grove the course follows quiet country lanes through the villages of Denchworth, Lyford and Charney Bassett. The race was chip timed and the start time was 09:30. The format and course of the race was unchanged from previous years. Owing to a re-organisation the 2019 event was not an Oxfordshire County Champs event although is part of the County Grand Prix series. The White Horse Half Marathon has been voted one of the top 10 races for PB potential on the Runners World website.

We Acknowledge Support for this Race from Revolution Sports Injuries Clinic.

In the recent past we have donated a share of the profits from this race to local charities.  We are now working with a local school on plans to install and upgrade athletics facilities which our athletes will be able to make use of. We have made a conscious decision not to nominate a local charity this year but to put funds raised by the 2019 race towards these facilities.
