The Banbury Run, like all of our events, relies heavily on volunteers to assist the organisers with a multitude of tasks ranging from helping to set up or clear up to marshalling, manning check-points, recovery or simply to help push!! If you are not lucky enough to eb able to compete, volunteering still helps you to feel part of this great occasion. If you would like to offer your services as a volunteer at Banbury 2024 or other events please register your interest here.

Banbury 2023

The weather was kind, at least for most ofnthe day. With around 300 entries spectators were able to marvel at some of the best and most unusual motorcycles of a bygone era. We were also favoured by Henry Cole and his production team who filmed the event as well as caturing him on his 1923 Calthorpe and Allen Millyard riding the club's Dreadnought. What out for his series, Shed and Buried, on Channel 4 this autumn.
