TVOC Summer Series

General image

TVOC runs a series of weekly low key events during the summer months, normally either on a Tuesday or Wednesday evening. These events are split between the west and east of TVOC's area, i.e centred on Oxford and High Wycombe. Mass start at 7.15pm or 7.30pm and after run natter in a local pub.

Normally three loops are offered of varying length and difficulty and these are used in combination to produce 3 courses. You choose which course you wish to run.

These events normally last about an hour and it can get dark quite quickly, so due to safety concerns, these events are not recommended for complete beginners.

The normal cost for these events is 3 for adults and 1 for juniors.

These events do not use Emit electronic punching.
