Tour De Trigs to return for 2012

It has been announced that the popular 50 mile competition hike around north Oxfordshire is set to return at the end of the year.

The event, first held in the early 60s, sees teams of three hike around a 50 mile course during a 24 hour period - it has previously attracted competitors from as far a field as the USA.

The last two Tours (2011 and 2010) had been cancelled, the 2010 event due to seriously inclement weather. A previous tour had also been cancelled due to the Foot and Mouth outbreak.

The 2012 Tour de Trigs will be organised by a combination of Banbury charities, although it seems that the Scouting organisation, who have overseen the previous events, will not be as actively involved this year.
