Winnaway and Holloway is a simple linear run of around 4.5k with minimal navigation challenge, suitable as a training run or perhaps a warm-up or warm-down together with our Didcot Ladywell sprint courses.

The Winnaway and Holloway are two ancient trackways in south Oxfordshire, linked on this run by a stretch of the Icknield Way. There are extensive views north on the return half, with Shotover Hill visible in the distance.

The start and finish are in the rear car park of Harwell village hall. You can park in the recreation ground car park, off Westfield, or in the village hall car park itself when the hall is not being used. The postcode is OX11 0LJ and coordinates N51 35.840 W001 17.750.
