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.
The events listed here should all be considered provisional until marked Confirmed. Check nearer the time for any changes.
Please support in numbers to reward the organisers. If you were to bring a large group of runners please inform the organiser to ensure sufficient overprinted maps.

Please arrive, register and prepare to
leave the car park promptly at 7.20pm
Pub for after is the Black Horse in Lacey Green
just over a mile down the road
The kitchen closes at 9pm so try to order close to 8:30 or earlier
Parking and start will be near the church. The small car park near it is accessed via a well concealed drive just after the bend
as you approach the village green. Please be ready to leave the car park by 7:25pm.
I'm going to suggest The Squirrel as the pub. Serving food
until 9pm, 5 mins walk away opposite the village green. Time penalty added for not going to the pub after running.
The Hit or Miss is another option, but a bit more gourmet!
