After months of diligent training, six staff from the School of the Built Environment ran the annual Town and Gown 10k race on a sunny Sunday in May.
The intrepid School team were:
Sue Brownill, Gina Dalton, Andressa Minogue, Geoff Morgan, Laura Novo de Azevedo and Pete Smith
The race course goes through the centre of historic Oxford and the streets had been cleared of vehicles in preparation. This provided some amazing views of what a streetscape looks like without cars.

There were some interesting fancy dress runners, including this scary clown, who actually won the race many years ago with sub 33 minute time. That didn't happen this year. Several fancy dress carrots, a Wonder Woman and a 'burlesque' dancer were also in the race.
