about hertford360

hertford360 is a global challenge for a global network

Team Hertford will be virtually circumnavigating the globe – 40,075km – to raise £300,000 for student support. Whether you cycle, run, swim or walk, how far will you go for #TeamHertford?

Your challenge

Pick your challenge from the list below, and choose whether to cycle, run, walk or swim – or a mixture of all four!

  • 360km > Oxford to Galway
  • 1080km > Oxford to Berlin
  • 1800km > Oxford to Rome
  • 2880km > Oxford to Moscow
  • 3600km > Oxford to San Francisco

Clock up the kilometres over a few days, weeks or months. This is a challenge you can do wherever you are in the world, at your own pace, and whenever you have time!

From our launch date of 1 January, the challenge takes place over seven months.


By registering, you will be joining Team Hertford – and every time you do your activity of choice, your distances will contribute to the team’s cumulative distance. Every kilometre helps us to reach our goal!

Virtually circumnavigating the globe is no easy feat, but with hard work (and some help from your friends) it is within reach – a bit like an Oxford education!

And you’ll be able to track Team Hertford’s progress on the interactive dial on the home page.

How it works

Sign up, connect your tracking app, like Strava or MapMyFitness (you can also add your kilometres manually), and get moving!

Whether it’s your daily travel to work, your Sunday-funday in the park, or your hardcore weekend team ride – it all counts. And since no challenge is complete without a little competition, every kilometre will be tracked on your page and the hertford360 leaderboard.

How your support helps

hertford360 is part of our #TeamHertford campaign, seeking to raise £300,000 for student support.
