HISTORY

ABOUT THE SQUEAKY BONE

This relay race is open to all ability levels, you just need to have 4 willing team members. There are two distances to choose from, 3.5 miles and 2.3 miles (the whole team must run the same route) with each member running the entire cross-county loop. They then hand their Squeaky Bone baton to the next team member...

The 2016 race attracted over 100 teams and we were blessed with truly glorious weather, great home-made cakes, a whole lot of squeaking and general frivolity!

We look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible and to hearing those bones squeak!

The 2017 Squeaky Bone race will take place on Sunday 1st October 2017 at 10am (registration at 9am)... so get the date in your diaries!

WHY IS IT CALLED SQUEAKY BONE?

Olney is renowned for its lace making history where bone bobbins were used by the poor women and children to keep them from the workhouse. In 1880, William Cowper wrote 'I am an eye witness to their poverty.'

With raw materials scarce and costly, bone bobbins were procured from all sources (it is suggested that this is why there is a lack of graveyards in Olney!)

In recognition of the town's history, whenever Olney Runners run a relay race we enact the supply of bone bobbins to the lace makers who would 'squeak by' on a limited income!
