Sun 7 Jul Oxenhope Straw Race

Details

The Oxenhope Straw Race takes place every summer in the Pennine village of Oxenhope, near Keighley. It was started by two men who made a bet about racing from one pub to the next carrying a bale of straw.

The event has gone from strength to strength, raising around £450,000 to date. The money is raised by teams collecting sponsorship for completing the course, often in fancy dress but also the more serious athletes competing for a good time, whilst carrying a bale of straw and visiting each of the local pubs in the village. It is great day out with a real carnival atmosphere!

Children welcome
