Oxford Half Marathon Join us and register for a charity place at this great event. Oxford holds a special place in the heart of the Duchenne UK. One of the most eminent scientists in the field of Duchenne muscular dystrophy, Professor Dame Kay Davies, is working on a treatment for this condition at the University right now, and we’re funding her lab. The Oxford Half Marathon is a fabulous event, which takes a 13.1 mile route around this famous historic city. Please come and run with us and help children with Duchenne. Contact us here if you would like to take part. After we have registered you, you can set up your own fundraising page on this website and email your friends direct.
