ANYONE looking for a way to work off over-indulgence over Christmas can take on a unique athletic challenge on Monday as Chadlington plays host to its annual Great Brook Run.

The mile-long route is split half and half between land and water, with runners setting off from the Tite Inn, in Mill End through muddy fields, before making their way back along the brook, before, water levels permitting, passing through the culvert under the road bridge outside the pub.

Last year a record number of people took part in the event – now in its seventh year – to raise money for charity.

And in 2012 Prime Minister and Witney MP David Cameron and his security staff came from his contisutency home in nearby Dean to take part, cheered on by his wife Samantha and hundreds of residents.

To take part in the run, you must register at the Tite Inn on the morning of the event, between 11am and 12.15pm, for a fee of £5.

The runners will set off at 12.30pm.

No children under the height of 4ft can take part and under- 16s must be accompanied along the course by a parent.
