Welcome to the Oxenhope Straw Race

Straw Race 2018

Straw Race 2018 was a huge success. The sun shone and the crowds were out in force. The fancy dress did not disappoint with aliens, Barbie and Ken, Little Red Riding Hood, Mad Scientists to name but a few. The winners this year, in a time of 19:07, were Ian Holmes and Will Smith. This is their tenth consecutive win so big congratulations to them.

Teams will now beaver away collecting in their sponsorship and cheques will be handed out to several local charities this coming November. Please give generously this year, costs are rising and the entry fee now pretty much pays for the running of the event so any spare coffers you can find would be gratefully received.

Straw Race 2017

The 2017 Straw Race was a great success. The sun, shone and the crowds were out in force to cheer on our intrepid racers.

In November, thanks to the efforts of our racers, we were able to hand out cheques to the value of around £10,000 to local charities, including Manorlands; Haworth Riding for the Disabled; PHAB; Faith and Light and Bradford Disability Sports and Leisure.
