"A challenging mixed terrain 10K race, in the Chiltern Hills around the village of Radnage, 5 minutes from junc 5 on the M40. The course involves sections on road, trails and footpaths; through woods and fields and includes off-road descents and ascents." The first Rugged Radnage 10K took place in 2010. When I did it in 2010, I found that about 3.5K was on tarmac with the rest on tracks (some rough) and footpaths. Quite a bit of the route is through woods. There was a lot of mud, especially in the woods. In 2010, I and most people near to me walked two killer hills: one hill is at 4K;  the other is at the start of the last 1K. I enjoyed it.

"Collect race number and chip on the day." "Venue is the Bicester Sports Association HQ (in Chesterton)." "The race uses a fast, flat course through the village of Chesterton and around the airfield at Weston on the Green." "Chip timing." "Memento." "As part of the event there are also a series of children’s races for school Year 6 and under competing over a 1k course and school Years 7 to 9 competing over a 3k course." Here are my notes from when I last did this race: 'The race takes place on a reasonably flat course, with about 4K on a straight old Roman Road called Akeman Street and another 4K round the perimeter road of the airfield at RAF Weston on the Green. If you're not at the front, then, whilst on the airfield, you can see the lead car on the other side of the airfield. When I did this race, it was about 2.5K ahead - it looked a long way away! The chip timing was from the start to the finish.'

"Collect race number and chip on the day." "We sold out in advance in 2016." 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 this is then followed by 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.

I've not seen online entry yet. "Collect race number 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! "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 as well (at 1040).

This is the date that is given at www.runbritain.com. "The 20 mile race has been specifically organised as a marathon preparation race. It is chip timed so that participants can have an accurate indication of their marathon race pace. Participants are released in waves linked to their marathon pace, helping to ensure participants are running with people aiming for the same pace on marathon day. Pacers will help participants to maintain that pace for the full 20 miles." Nearer the time I need to check the distances that are on offer for the 2018 event.

This is the date that is given at www.runbritain.com. "The Hornton Classic 6 is held annually at Hornton village, 6 miles north-west of Banbury. The race was first held in 1994 with only 25 starters. It is now part of the Oxon Road Race Grand Prix series of races and 150 or more turn up to run this scenic and undulating course through the picturesque villages of Hornton and Horley." The Hornton 6 is described as a "virtually traffic-free course over a scenic and undulating race route". 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, then there's 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 down hill fast finish back to the Village Green. Here is a link to a map produced by the course measurer and I think it is up-to-date. "Drinks and refreshments are available after the race. For the last few years there has also been free over-night camping where everyone is welcome to stay, but please bear in mind that there are limited facilities. We also hold a 'Bring your own Burger' BBQ" after the race."

This is the date that is given at www.runbritain.com. "The 10K and 5K races take place on rural roads. The course is flat and likely to be a PB course." "The 5K is one lap and the 10K is two laps of this course." "In 2017 there will also be a Flutterby Fun Run, a 2K run for all of the family to take part in. Whether you run, walk, jog or flutter your way to the finish line there will be a medal for everyone who takes part. The Flutterby Fun Run is open to anyone aged 3-14 but under 5s must run with an adult and all participants must have a parent or carer with them at the event."

This date is the one that is given at www.runnersworld.co.uk. "Venue is the beautiful Stonor Park. The races take place in the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty." First held in 2017. Here's my analysis of the routes used for the 2017 races following a quick look at the maps. There's little tarmac as the routes use footpaths and these often trail through woods. The 8K climbs gradually up to Southend and then descends down to Dolesden. It returns by gradually climbing to Kimble Farm. The 15K and the 23K take a longer route between Southend and Dolesden that takes in Turville Heath and the outskirts of Turville. After Dolesden, both the 15K and the 23K climb to Gussets Wood after which they descend and then climb to Bosmore Farm. However, the difference between the 15K and the 23K is that the latter does this using a 7K detour to the outskirts of Hambledon. All three routes finish using a short sharp steep descent through woods down to Stonor. Watch out for the tree roots!

This is the date that is given at www.runbritain.com. Frieth is a village in the Chilterns about 5 miles west of Marlow. The 10K involves sections on road, trails and  footpaths through woods and fields, including challenging off-road descents and ascents. There's one point where the route that comes out of a wood to go along the side of a field throws you down from about 160m to 90m during the course of 0.5K. Then, after a flat section along lanes through Fingest and Skirmett, there's the  inevitable long hard climb. Although, unlike the descent, the ascent doesn't all come at once, it's still hard work. In about 0.3K you go from about 80m to 110m. The path then flattens out for a bit (in Hatchet Wood) before there is another push. In all, you go from about 80m to 160m in about 2K. Although the rest of the route is mainly undulating, there is the final sting: the last 0.5K is a climb from about 140m to 175m to get back up to Frieth. Even though it's tough, I love this route, and Autumn is a good time to visit the area as the Chiltern Hills are gorgeous at this time of year. There is a 5K event as well as the 10K. "The 5K is certainly a flatter route, and was enjoyed by many school/junior club runners last year. It is an ideal first 5K race, or for  those that are not quite brave enough to take on the challenge of the 10K hills just yet."

"Early bird entries end on Nov 30th 2017." Entries opened on Oct 24th 2017 and on Oct 31st 2017 the online entry page said it's 95 percent full - however I've seen a post on Facebook that says this is the percentage of early bird entries. Although there is a closing date of Oct 18th, the race was full in 2017 by about Oct 7th 2017. As in 2017, the start time is 0900 which is one hour earlier than in previous years. "Venue is Marling School, Cainscross Road." "The route remains mainly unchanged, and has a great mix of  urban and rural roads, with a large element of managed roads." "Although not flat, the course is a great place for a fast time. Suitable for racers, recreational runners and novices alike." "Technical T-shirt, medal."

"Collect race number and chip on the day." Although entries on the day are permitted "(unless sold out)", "the October 2017 edition of this event was a sell-out - don't miss your chance to run." "The 5km starts at 1000 and the 10km Race starts at 1100." "The races start and finish at the Leisure Centre." "Both races use out and back routes along country lanes." Here is a link to a map produced by the course measurer but I don't know how up-to-date it is. "Chip timing." "Medal." "There is also a Fun Run at 1030." As its name suggests the event takes place twice a year.
