HUNDREDS of cyclists and runners will take part in the Henley Highwayman this weekend.

The duathlon, which is now in its second year, will feature a bike ride on Saturday with riders starting from Market Place and attempting either 38km, 62km, 120km or 182km.

The run will take place on Sunday when some town centre roads will be closed from 9am to 9.20am for the grand depart from Market Place.

The participants will run along Bell Street and Marlow Road before going into the Chiltern Hills at Swiss Farm for the rest of their chosen distances, which are 9km, 17km and 25km as well as the new Henley Standard 5km.

For every entry £2 will be donated to the Sue Ryder hospice in Nettlebed.

Organiser Phil Harrison said: “The Henley Highwayman organisers have gone to great lengths to create an enjoyable event that won’t have a negative impact on the town and surrounding area.

“The route and traffic plans have been designed to cause little or no disruption for local people and by positioning the event right in the town, participants are encouraged to use local businesses.”

Entries are still open at www.henleyhighwayman.co.uk
