RUNNERS from across the UK pounded the streets of Oxford yesterday.

They took part in the annual Teddy Hall Relay Race, which has been a fixture since the 1960s.

Originally just for Oxford University students, it has grown in popularity.

This year 750 runners from Bath, Bristol, London, Cambridge and local athletic clubs took part.

Setting off from the Roger Bannister sports ground in Iffley Road at 1.30pm, all the runners, in teams of three or four, ran a 3.6-mile course around the city.

An events co-ordinator said: “It went really well.

“We had a lovely afternoon.”
