Woodcote 10K
10K
In 2020 this event had a UKA licence CANCELLED
This web page says the event has been cancelled. "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 downhill 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."

As the web page to enter now enters you for the event in February, I assume that the event in January has been cancelled. "Collect number and chip on the day."

Gibbet Hangover
10M, 5.5M
CANCELLED
This web page says the event has been cancelled. "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 2014-20, the organisers produced a set of results.
