Postponement/cancellation of races. I've now been through all the races until the end of July and have updated the adverts for those races that have been cancelled or postponed. Although some race organisers say they are "postponing their race to 2021" on this web page that race is identified as "cancelled" and "postponed" is only used for those races which have a new date in 2020 and those races where the organiser is looking for a new date in 2020. Races that have been converted into virtual runs are marked as "cancelled". I haven't made any changes to races that have currently suspended taking new entries. Please e-mail me about any errors or if you see a cancellation or postponement that I've missed.

This web page says the event has been cancelled. One of the East Midlands Grand Prix (EMGP) series of midweek road races during May, June and July taking place at Silverstone, Rugby, Blisworth, Banbury, Corby, Harborough, Weedon and Milton Keynes. This web page says the Series has been cancelled.
"The Race HQ and car park for the Banbury 5 is at Banbury Academy, Ruskin Road." Here are my notes from when I ran it a few years ago: 'this 5M is on rural roads in/near the outskirts of Banbury - there is a shortcut behind the school across its playing fields to the start - the start is in Browning Road which is in a housing estate off Bloxham Road - at the 1M marker, there is a slight hill - there is a big hill before the 3M marker and a slight dip at 3.6M - it is flat from 4M onwards and there is a slight decline to the finish which is near to where Bloxham Road joins Queensway.' This course map is useful as it not only has the route of the race (marked in red) but it also has the walking route from the Race HQ  to the start (marked in blue) and the walking route from the finish to the Race HQ (marked in green).

This web page says the event has been cancelled. The Otmoor Challenge is a half marathon along footpaths and roads around the Otmoor. Together with a 5M walk and a 13.1M walk, it forms one of the events of Horton-cum-Studley's Otmoor Day. "The Otmoor Challenge starts and finishes on the playing field where a traditional village fete is an added attraction for friends, family and your supporters while you are on the Run." If you enter in advance, your "race number must be collected from the Pre-Registration Desk" which is in one of the tents usually on the left-hand side (NE side) of the playing field. "The good news is that the first 11 miles are virtually flat. The course begins with a mass start of all runners on the playing field, and then has a short 400 metre road stretch before entering a track. This then leads across fields on footpaths, followed by farm tracks before rejoining the road near Murcott. Runners then have a fast road run through the villages of Murcott, Fencott, Charlton and Oddington before a mix of tracks and road to Noke and then there is the 'never-ending field' leading, at the 11 mile point, to a long climb up the hill to Beckley. There is then a steep upwards track and a welcome downhill footpath through fields and woods to rejoin the road for a final fast mile back to Horton cum Studley and the finish line." "The first 350 runners finishing receive a medal." "Runners are encouraged to form teams of four, which can be male, female or mixed, to win team prizes."

"The race is run on quiet roads and tracks around Inkpen and Kintbury." "The course starts off undulating on tarmac roads until 2M, then follows a dirt and stony track, this is then followed by a flat 1.5M along a private tarmac road. To finish off, the last half a mile takes you through the centre of the village, along the High Street and back to the recreation ground."

This web page now says the event will take place on Jul 4th rather than Mar 31st. "Venue is the Princes Risborough School, Merton Road." "This event sold out in record time in 2019 so make sure you book early to avoid disappointment. Nestled in the heart of England these routes really deliver on all levels, you will find yourself winding through ancient woodland, steeped in history with incredible views over the surrounding Chiltern Hills AONB." "The routes start off by climbing up to Whiteleaf Hill, where you will see the famous white leaf chalk cross, and again stunning views of the surrounding area." "Whilst running you will be greeted with the sound of Red Kites soaring high above. And you will find yourselves running on various famous paths such as the Icknield Way, which is one of the oldest roads in Britain - it consists of  prehistoric pathways, already old when the Romans set foot upon it. It survives now as splendid green lanes." "A section of the long route takes you to a viewpoint where you can see 'Chequers', the famous 16th Century country home of the Prime Minister." "Medal." This race was first held in 2019.

"This race is held annually at Hornton village, 6 miles north-west of Banbury." The start/finish is at the Village Green which means there is about a 350m long gentle rise before the first steep hill. There is then a gentle down followed by a not-so-gentle up. It's then flat for a short while before a big dip. This flattish bit starts at 2K and lasts for about 3K - if it's been raining a lot recently, there'll be a point where you'll have to run through very shallow water that stretches from one side of the road to the other! At 3M, it's steep down into Horley but that is immediately followed by a long gentle climb through and out of the village. From 4M, it's reasonably flat for about 1.5M. The race ends with 0.5K fast down hill back to the Village Green. The race takes place on a "virtually traffic-free course". Here is a link to a map produced by the course measurer and I think it is up-to-date. In previous years, drinks and refreshments were available after the race together with a 'Bring your own Burger' BBQ. Also for the last few years "there has also been free over-night camping where everyone is welcome to stay, but bear in mind that there are limited facilities".

So when entering, it's important for you to try and decide which boat you'll be taking on, based on your predicted finish time over the course. Faster runners will be looking to beat the 40 min boat, and would therefore want any supporters to be on-board that one, whereas people running closer to 50 or 60 mins, would be chasing those boats."

"Collect race number and chip on the day." "Venue is the Dymock Cricket Club, The Pound." "New for 2020: there's also a 10K." "Start times: 0915:10K, 0930:half." "Both courses run through beautiful rural countryside. The Half is a road race, but mainly on very quiet lanes with only about 600 yards of B road. It would best be described as hilly/undulating and as such not one for a PB.  The 10K course follows the same first 2 miles as the Half, but with this run you get some beautiful woodland running to mix it up. Both events swing South out of the village through small country lanes, where the Half crosses the M50 for the first time at Four Oaks, the 10K at this points turns right towards Dymock Woods. A quick detour for the Half around Holder's lane deposits us on the Kempley road heading North into Queen's Wood (the epicentre of the famous Daffodil Walk) and into the pretty village of Kempley. Once through Kempley, turning at Kempley New Church, the route tends North on a gradual incline towards Much Marcle, before doubling back past Kempley Old Church and the historic Memorial Oak (location of the last drinks station for the half) before returning to  Candle Cottage on the edge of Kempley prior to veering back Eastward for the final few miles back to Dymock and over the old railway bridge. For the 10K, following the right turn just before the Motorway bridge, you need to loop (only once) through Dymock Woods, you continue on the lane through towards Norman's Land towards Dymock, once back to Dymock back over the old railway bridge, both races then go past the Beauchamps Arms and sprint to the finish." I don't know how accurate this map is. "M markers." "Chip timing." "Medal."

This has moved from Sep 26th to Oct 3rd. "There are different prices depending on when you enter." "The Race HQ is located at the National Bowl, Watling Street." "Start times: 1300:half, 1315:10K." In 2019 the course was almost entirely traffic free on the Redways (purpose built cycle paths) and took in some of the very best sights of Milton Keynes including the National Bowl, Furzton Lake, Howe Park wood and the ancient tiny church of St Giles - it finished off by running back through the Emerson Valley linear park. In 2019, chip timing was used. "Medal." "All Half Marathon finishers will receive a T-shirt." "There is also a family run which will start at 1100 allowing competitors in the Half Marathon or 10K to participate if they wish to - parents can run alongside their little ones at no extra cost."

"The course is multi-terrain. This means there are bumps and lumps and stumps and branches and all the hazards of the countryside. The descent of  Incombe Hole can be very slippery when wet and Pitstone Hill has a lot of rabbit holes - don't go down one."

"We have taken the decision to not open race entries at this stage - we will assess the situation in the coming months." Frieth is a village in the Chilterns about 5 miles west of Marlow. The 10K involves sections on road, trails and  footpaths through woods and fields, including challenging off-road descents and ascents. There's one point where the route that comes out of a wood to go along the side of a field throws you down from about 160m to 90m during the course of 0.5K. Then, after a flat section along lanes through Fingest and Skirmett, there's the  inevitable long hard climb. Although, unlike the descent, the ascent doesn't all come at once, it's still hard work. In about 0.3K you go from about 80m to 110m. The path then flattens out for a bit (in Hatchet Wood) before there is another push. In all, you go from about 80m to 160m in about 2K. Although the rest of the route is mainly undulating, there is the final sting: the last 0.5K is a climb from about 140m to 175m to get back up to Frieth. Even though it's tough, I love this route, and Autumn is a good time to visit the area as the Chiltern Hills are gorgeous at this time of year. There is a 5K event as well as the 10K. "The 5K is certainly a flatter route, and was enjoyed by many school/junior club runners last year. It is an ideal first 5K race, or for  those that are not quite brave enough to take on the challenge of the 10K hills just yet." "The Frieth Hilly is known for the warmth of its welcome (and its hills). The whole school and villagers turn out to cheer on the runners."

This is the date that is given in the list of races of the Glos AAA Road Race Series 2020.

"It is a largely flat and traffic-free course with entirely closed tarmac roads." "Runners of all abilities are welcome including club athletes, elites and recreational runners." This is the Dave McNamee Memorial race. Not to be confused with the Gloucester 10K on Jul 5th.

Although runbritain says Nov 21st, that's a Saturday - my GUESS is that this race will be on Nov 22nd. "A challenging, multi-terrain event through picturesque Chiltern countryside."
