A record number of runners, including people, dogs and tortoises, helped raise more than £1,200 at the Hooky Alternative Race for Life on Sunday.
The ninth annual race saw more than 200 runners complete the three-mile course in aid of Cancer Research UK around Hook Norton before a party at The Sun Inn, where the race started and finished.
Organiser Gill Begnor said it was a ‘brilliant day’, especially because two-year-old villager Ruairi Hackland joined in with his family and supporters all wearing Super Ru capes.
Ruairi has a very rare form of cancer and the whole village is helping the family to raise money for research. For more information about the race or Ruairi’s appeal, visit the race Facebook page @hookyraceforlife.
