Welcome to the Oxenhope Straw Race

Entries are now open!

Straw Race 2014

It’s certainly a busy year for Oxenhope and one that has caused us here at Straw Race HQ one or two logistical conundrums.  It cannot have escaped your attention that the Tour De France will be passing through our beautiful part of the world on what is traditionally Straw Race day.  As keen cycling enthusiasts, several members of the Straw Race committee are very excited about this, however it has meant that there has had to be a certain amount of date juggling with all the events that take place in Oxenhope during the summer months.  We can now confirm that the date of this year’s race will be a week later than usual on Sunday 13th July 2014.

Our second challenge has been the closure of the Waggon and Horses which is the starting point for the event.  This remains a topic for discussion.  We are in discussion with a number of people and have one or two options for the start which we will continue to pursue.  A final decision and announcement about the start will be made at the end of May, so watch this space. In the meantime entries have now opened and as far as organising the event is concerned it is business as usual.
