Entries are now open for this year’s Banbury Run.
The popular annual race is organised by Banbury Harriers Athletics Club and participants can choose between a 15-mile route and the two-mile or one-mile Paul Bithell Memorial Fun Run.
This year a new course layout has been introduced in Spiceball Park. The event starts at 10.30am on Sunday, March 9. Mike Hughes, organiser, is hoping to introduce a new concept to the fun run and attract more runners from Banbury primary schools.
He said: “With the success of the Olympics in 2012 we are trying to get more people out and getting fit. It is a great event and we hope schools can urge any superstars in Years Five and Six to apply!”
Entry for the Banbury 15 is £12 for club members and £14 for non members. The one-mile fun run costs £1 and the two-mile £3. All proceeds go to Katharine House Hospice.
