Iffley results are published

The results of the Iffley event are now posted to the OSS website.
Thanks go to Neville for planning his second event of the season.
Also to the Tree Hotel for hosting us for the evening.

It is now very tight at the top of the Mens competition
with Roger, Nigel and Matthew all tying on 197 points.
In the Womens competition Charlotte leads over Marie-Anne,
with Megan in third.

One issue with the results is we have no points total for
Hermanus Henning. If you still have your answer sheet or
can remember how many point you gained, then please let us
know.

As usual if you spot any mistakes, (Name, Club, Class, Points)
please let me know and I try and fix them up.

Didcot results are published

The results for the Didcot OSS event are now published. Many thanks to Charlotte for planning in the new area. Also thanks go to The Station Garden for allowing us use the venue. Ample space and nice pizzas.

Again it was great to see new faces at the event. I do hope you enjoyed the run and will come back to try again.

In terms of the league, Charlotte has re-taken the lead in the Womens table. For the men quite a number of changes at the top where people are now getting to four events. Roger and Matthew replacing Robin in the lead.

As usual if you spot any mistakes, (Name, Club, Class, Points) please let me know and I try and fix them up.

Thame results are published

The results for the Thame OSS event are now published. Many thanks to Jon for planning and dealing with the postponement from January. Also thanks go to The James Figg for allowing us use of the Stables, a great venue with ample space.

It was great to see many new faces at the event I believe the following were on their first OSS event, Meghan, Kathryn A, Adam, Chris, Rob, James, Philip J-D, Andy, 8 out of 25. Also there was a first time run this season for 16 out the 25 too.

Jon had planned a different style of course where all the 30s, 20s and 10s were somewhat grouped together. Almost forcing you to deal with the tricky housing estate of roads and paths to get the high scoring 30s. Then what to do with the other controls was the issue. Then the 50 in the corner, was it worth going to.

In terms of the league, Marie-Anne has taken over in the Womens table. For the men Robin heads Neville and Roger C. Though there are a number of people with high scores who have only two races to their names. Nigel, Roger T, Matthew W, Adam N, with Marcin, John O and Ben lurking in the background.

As usual if you spot any mistakes, (Name, Club, Class, Points) please let me know and I try and fix them up.

Thame (New Date 5th Feb)

The Thame event on 22 Jan 2019 has been postponed due to weather. We intend to reschedule this event later in the season.

Botley results are published

Many thanks to Laura and Nick for organising the Botley event. The weather was kind to us as it was mild and not raining. Though a little soggy underfoot in Raleigh Park. The Touch-O system was in use again and provided for some long distances to be covered.

Thanks also go to the Seacourt Bridge Inn for hosting us. A new venue and suitably located for the event. On the level so no running back up the hill to finish.

It was great to see yet more new faces at an event. A big turnout from Eynsham Road Runners. I do hope you enjoyed the evening and the challenge of having to plan routes in addition to running.

Katie retains her lead in the overall league, though Charlotte has gained some ground with a good run. Over in the Mens league, Robin has taken over the lead, mainly due to Nigel not turning out for a run.

The results for the Botley event #3 are now published on the website.
As usual if you spot any mistakes, (Name, Club, Class, Points) please let me know and I try and fix them up.

Jericho & City Centre results are published

Many thanks to Ben for planning and organising the Jericho and City Centre event. It was good to try the ‘Touch-O’ or ‘Touch-AnyLetter’ system again. This made for fast running and longer distances to be covered.

Thanks also go to the Rickety Press for hosting and reserving some tables by the door.

Another great turn out for this event, along with couple of new faces which is good. I hope you enjoyed the evening run around in the dry but not so warm weather.

Nigel is still continuing to lead the pack in the Mens competition, missing out on a full 600 point by being a bit casual when he returned to the Rickety Press. There is a change in the Womens standings with Katie taking the lead.

Lost Property:
There was a lilac cotton T-shirt left at the end of the evening.
If it is your’s please let me know. I will leave it in the OSS box for
collection at the next event.

The results for the Jericho & City Centre event #2 are now published on the website.
As usual if you spot any mistakes, (Name, Club, Class, Points) please let me know and I try and fix them up.
