WEIRD, wonderful and wacky: We want to see the fancy dress you'll be donning for the Oxford Mail's Ox5 Run. 

On March 26, thousands of runners will pound paths around the beautiful grounds of Blenheim Palace.

In previous years we've had Minions, the Incredible Hulk and a swarm of bumble bees compete in the event - and this year we want to see entrants do even better.

Send us pictures of yourself in the fancy dress you plan to take on the Ox5 in and we'll share them with our readers across the county.

To submit your fancy dress picture scroll to the bottom of the article
