Welcome to the Oxenhope Straw Race

Straw Race 2016

The Straw Race this year will take place on Sunday 3rd July and we’re really pleased to be able to announce that the Wagon and Horses will be hosting the start for us after a two year absence.  Our sincerest thanks to the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway for stepping most ably into the breach for the past two years.  If it wasn’t for them local charities would have been denied almost £30,000.

This year also sees the 40th anniversary of the event so it’s an exciting year for us.  All competitors will be receiving 40th Anniversary T-shirts which have been kindly sponsored by a number of local businesses, namely McDowell Transport, Wyedean Weaving, Westlake & Co. Chartered Surveyors, Mercado and JMH Aspirations.  In addition to the T-shirt, everyone who completes the course in the time allowed will receive a medal with commemorative ribbon and all category will be receiving an extra special “gold medal”.
