Kidlington Running Club has organised the Mota-vation Summer Road Race Series since the late 1980s.

There are five races in the summer Mota-vation series. They all take place on Thursday evenings and are tremendous fun. Each race is about four miles on quiet roads in pretty Oxfordshire villages.

Abingdon AC is one of the largest clubs taking part. The races are inclusive with a great atmosphere. Several of the events have a crepe van for food after the race, some have bars. We include at least one post-race pub stop.

If you are new to the club or new to racing, this is the perfect place to start! 

Entry cost

£20 for five races. 

How to enter

We get a huge number of entries and must meet the organisers' requirements.

Follow the steps below.

  1. Complete the online entry form.
  2. Print, fill in and sign the paper entry form. Return it to any club committee member.
  3. Pay the £20 for your entry by BACS, cheque or cash.

Pay by BACS

Paying by BACS is the easiest method. We include account details in the email you get back from the online form.

  1. Make one payment per runner. E.g. for a family of four, there will have to be four separate payments of £20.
  2. Use the payment reference from the response email (they will look like this: M19XXX).

Pay by cheque or cash

Make the cheque payable to Abingdon AC. Write the runner's name and payment reference number on the back of the cheque.
