"Individual race entry now open, pick the races you want to do. "There was a record turnout for the first race of the 2019-20 Series.

Draycote Water Winter 10Ks Race 4 - January
10K
UKA_2019-39331, UKA_pending
"Collect race number and chip on the day." This is one of the Winter Series of six 10Ks taking place at Draycote Water on Oct 13th, Nov 10th, Dec 8th, Jan 12th, Feb 9th and Mar 8th. "Running alongside the water, using dam wall pathways and a perimeter service road, you will find mesmerising views of nature trails, wildlife and boats on the water as you notch up kilometre after kilometre. Some short inclines and downhill stretches keep the landscape changing around you, so you will not get tired of your surroundings, even as you dig in to the later stages of a race." "The course starts a short walk from the race village, beginning on the upper pathway and heading north for approximately 1K before turning back onto the lower perimeter road. It then continues back to the race village for approximately 1.5K followed by one complete clockwise lap of the reservoir. The race, predominantly on tarmac pathway but including loose gravel in places, is suitable for runners of all abilities." "K markers." "Chip timing." "Medal, goody bag."

10K
UKA_2020-37411
"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'. "K markers." "Chip timing." "Medal."

Gibbet Hangover
10M, 5.5M
"The start is at the Crown and Garter Pub, Great Common Road, Inkpen Common." "The Hangover is a 10 mile(ish) wander around the beautiful countryside of Inkpen and Combe. The route takes in Walbury Hill, Combe Gibbet, and the  Test Way, with a good mix of road and off-road (footpaths and bridleways), and a couple of decent climbs. We also have a shorter route of 5 miles or so for anybody who doesn't fancy the full distance. The finish is also at the Crown and Garter Pub, with a drink or two in the pub afterwards. Note that The Hangover is a casual get together, not a formal race event, so there is no entry fee, and the only prize is a pint for the first finisher." Even so, in 2014-19, the organisers produced a set of results.
