BANBURY TO OXFORD CANAL RUN
SATURDAY 5th MAY
27.24 MILES if navigated correctly by me.
Meet at 9am by the Spiceball Leisure Centre, Banbury.
*DO NOT LEAVE YOUR CAR HERE AS WE WILL NOT BE RETURNING*
You will need to carry everything you need, and expect this to take 4-6 hrs, as it will be run at a pace to suit all who come. It’s about the journey, not how fast it’s done.
Once in Oxford we get the Bus back to Witney, so bring some money. Or arrange to be picked up.
There are cut off options along the way, e.g. Lower Heyford Train Station (13 miles) Rock of Gibraltar Inn near Bletchingdon (18 miles) Thrupp (20 miles). You will need to organise being picked up though. Or you could try and meet us along the way and run into Oxford
You can track the Canal on Bing.com/maps. Their Aerial View option gives a very clear picture of the route. Very useful if you wish to plan a cut off or cut in point.
It will be CANCELLED if it is raining on the morning of the run
Adventure is better in the dry.
Andy Church, Jamie Jones, Paul Rushby, Lisa Butler and myself did it last year.
Let me know if you wish to join me and we can talk about lifts to Banbury.
