Abingdon South results are published

The results for the Abingdon South event #3 are now published.

Many thanks to John for planning and organising. Thanks also to the White Horse for hosting us at our first event in the area. It was a good turnout last Tuesday with even our Chairman turning out for a light run. Again a tricky area where obtaining high scores was not that easy.

Rose Hill & Iffley results are published

The results for the Rose Hill & Iffley event #2 are now published.

Many thanks to Marcin for planning and organising. Thanks also to the Prince of Wales for hosting us and especially for photocopying a couple more maps. It was a great turnout on Wednesday. The overall locations of the control sites proved to be a difficult one to work out the best route for however far you ran for.

Botley results are published

The Botley results have been published. Many thanks to Roger who planned and Heather for hosting and
providing food for the post race gathering. As usual if you see any mistakes please let me know and I’ll get them sorted.

As this was the final event of the season the overall standings are now complete too.
Congratulations to Roger and Sarah who took the Men’s and Womens overall title respectively.

Further comment and information to follow.

Final event of the 2015-2016 series

Just to remind you, tomorrow sees the finale of the 2015/16 Oxford Street-O season, around the streets of Botley and planned by Roger Thetford. There will be a prize giving for the series once everyone has finished. See you there!

Summertown Report

Thanks to Ben for providing some thought on the event.

Thanks to those who turned up to the Summertown Street O on a miserable evening, making the many months of meticulous planning worthwhile. I hope you all gained useful knowledge on non-consecutive house numbers and the wide variety of hydrant ratios in North Oxford. Apologies for not clarifying that First Turn, whilst closed to traffic, is open to pedestrians – albeit with a less direct route than indicated on the map. It seems to have been quite unclear what the optimal route was – I will have to go and give it a go myself!

Summertown results are published

The Summertown results have been published. Many thanks to Ben who planned and the family for hosting us. The food was excellent and nicely warming after a chilly damp evening runaround. We also welcomed a couple of newcomers in Nat, Ahmed and Alex. Hopefully you enjoyed yourselves in spite of the conditions.
The leader board is now taking a firmer shape as more people now have the maximum number of scoring events. I can see it getting very tight at the top.
As usual if you see any mistakes please let me know and I’ll get them sorted.
