"Collect race number and chip on the day." "Venue is the Village Hall." My notes from when I did this in 2011 say 'this 10K is on country lanes in the Chilterns - it starts from the village green in Woodcote, goes down hill along lanes through woods to Goring - at 5K, it goes up the killer hill that is outside Goring's Fire Station, the same hill that is used for the start of the Goring 10K - there is then a 1K respite but this is followed by a long climb back to Woodcote - elsewhere on the web, someone says it's a "tough road race, 5K downhill followed by 5K uphill" and that describes it very well'.

"Collect race number on the day." "Venue is Furze Down School, Verney Road." "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!

"Collect race number and chip on the day." "Venue is the Spiceball Leisure Centre." 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! "Chip timing." "Memento." The race has been renamed "Geoff Smith's Banbury 15". Geoff Smith, a former chairman of Banbury Harriers, died in May 2015. "Smithy was the spearhead of The Banbury Fifteen road-race". There are also 1M and 2.5M Paul Bithell Memorial fun runs (at 1040).

"Collect race number and chip on the day." Although entries on the day are permitted if the race is not full, "we have sold out in previous years". 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 Facebook post says that "registration will go live on Jan 1st 2020". "Act quickly as over the last two years we have sold out by mid-March." "The race goes through the centre of historic Corsham, then gradually climbs up Park Lane to the peak of the course at 4K.  Down Westwells to the water station at 5K before heading onto the country lanes and up to Neston at 6K.  It is then mostly downhill to the finish, but watch out for the cheeky climb on Pound Pill at the 9K mark before heading back to the Football Club." I don't know how accurate this map is.

This is one of a series of races held at Charlton-on-Otmoor, Bletchingdon, Combe, Combe and Kidlington. This web page is using the provisional dates that are given on the Mota-vation web page. Usually there is a considerable discount if you enter the Series and members of some clubs get an even bigger discount if they instead enter through their club. No new entries were taken on the night for any of the 2019 races. In previous years, there were chip timing and spot prizes and you got a memento if you enter the Series. "Venue of the Charlton-on-Otmoor race is the Recreation Ground, High Street." In 2019 this race used the 5.2M course adopted in a hurry in 2018 - it's two laps of the initial circle rather than a figure-of-eight - the figure-of-eight course was 4.0955M long.

This Facebook post says the "Ollie Johnson Memorial Kintbury 5" will in future be known as the "Kintbury 5".  "Venue is the Kintbury recreation ground behind the Jubilee Sports Centre." "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." Here are my notes from 2010: 'this 5M race starts with a run round a football field and then it's uphill for 1M  - the race ends with a slight uphill - it's mainly on tarmac or concrete but there were a few small, loose gravel, uneven paths - accurate M markers'. "Before the start of the 5M race, we offer children races for 3 age groups."

"A road race for runners of all abilities in the quiet Oxfordshire village of Cumnor." Two laps of the centre of Cumnor. In 2019, there were K markers and spot prizes and you got a medal. "The date for the race tries to coincide with the village fete which is generally in the first 2 weeks of June and finishes at 1630, hence the race time of 1700. This ensures great support from the village, and also the roads are quieter."

Although runbritain says Jul 17th, the Oxfordshire Road Race Diary has Jul 18th. 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". 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".

All runners set off together in a traditional race format, with a difference, because just yards from where you start on the Brocas fields in Eton, the 5 Thames Cruise boats will be starting too and they'll be full of your friends and family members ready to cheer you on, as you try to beat the boat." "The 5 boats will be clearly labelled as 40/50/55/60/70 mins respectively. So when entering, its 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." "For runners of all abilities." "Chip timing." "Technical T-shirt, medal."
