OSS Nov 2019(Witney)

November 12 @ 5:45 pm - 7:30 pm

£2.00

The November event of the Oxford Street-O series will take place on Tue 12th November in Witney. This will be planned by John Owens and will be the first time we have visited this town. There is a possibility that a full TVOC urban event will be in Witney next Summer. So do come along and have a look around.

Event centre

The event centre will be the The Blue Boar Pub 28 Market Sq, Witney, OX28 6BH. If possible please come on foot, by bicycle or by public transport. For car parking the option is to park in any of the large carparks off Witan way and walk through to the pub.

Buses from Oxford

Take the S1, S2 or S7 routes, all of which run regularly, taking from 35 to 50 minutes.
Route S1
Route S2
Route S7

Race Format

60 minute score (visit as many controls as you can and return within 60 minutes) using a simplified map (1:10,000 scale). Remember to bring a watch and a pen! Start times are between 5:45pm and 7:30pm, starting whenever you’re ready. See About Street-O for a more detailed description. Don’t forget to bring a head torch as some of the streets and paths are not very well lit and please wear bright clothing.

Terrain

Largely tarmac roads and paths, mostly around quiet residential areas, but there are some controls in the town centre amongst the shops and industrial buildings. You will be looking for controls such as ‘number on lamp post?’ or ‘post box collection times?’. Please note that the main roads in the centre of town can be busy.

The traffic can be busy in places so you must take care crossing all roads.

Social

If you can, please stay after you have run to discuss routes, mistakes, the weather or anything else that takes your fancy. The pub does serves food, there is lots to choose from including formal menu, bar snacks and a pizza oven. Food service continues until 10:00pm, Menu. Or you are also more than welcome to get some nibbles like nuts etc. and obviously a post-run pint!
