This post to twitter says "we have had to make a very difficult decision to postpone the Winslow 10K  planned for February 2021. ... We will be back in 2022!" "The route, which is a single lap on country lanes is quiet, pleasant and rural through the North Bucks countryside. It leaves Winslow and passes Verney Junction, Sandhills then East Claydon and returns via the Granborough Road to Winslow. (With a bit of a climb to finish, so keep something back!)" A map of the  route shows the course varying from about 85m to 113m. When I ran it in 2010 I found a long gentle incline lasting from 3.5K to 5K and another short one at 5.5K. But the cruel bit was at the end: there was a steep hill from 9K to 9.5K. Needless to say this is where the official photographer was positioned to catch all the grimaces!

I understand the event has been cancelled. The Goring 10K takes place on undulating rural lanes and footpaths but there are also three or four hills. The race starts at the bottom of a hill outside Goring's Fire Station. The hill climbs from 60m to 95m and lasts about 1K. The race then uses country lanes, 1.5K of the Ridgeway through South Stoke, more country lanes to re-visit the highest point of the course about 1.5K from the end. So you then go down the 1K hill you did at the start but you run pass the start to do a few meanderings around a housing estate before finishing on a field behind the School. Tip: if you're wishing to finish fast but are tired at the end of the race, these meanderings can be a bit confusing. So the last 0.5K are worth checking out when you are warming up  - if you wish to do this, have a look at the course map. A small section of the route is the same as that of the Woodcote 10K.

This web page says "the race will not take place in March but we have not ruled out holding it later in the year". The course is a shaped like a letter P, the out and back bit being about 5M long. This out and back bit starts along narrow paths in Spiceball Park. It continues on a footpath that accompanies the A423. The first hill is alongside this main road at about 1.25M. Just after 2M, the course leaves the main road and ventures into the countryside visiting the villages of Little Bourton, Great Bourton and Cropredy. At 5M, the circular 5M bit  of the P starts. Here there is a short hill and at 6M there is a longer hill. At the top, you reach a village called Claydon. In my opinion, the nicest part of the course is between 6.5M and 8M: so peaceful on a quiet, narrow lane that crosses the Oxford Canal (between Claydon and Appletree). Unfortunately, this tranquillity is shattered by a significant hill at 8M (and in the future by being only 1K from 225 mph trains on the HS2 railway line). Just after the 10M marker, you complete the circular bit of the course. Just after 11M you meet the last hill which is on the approach to Great Bourton. You know it's coming as you went down it on the way out!
