The fourth contest in the 2018/19 series will be in the Forest of Dean this Sunday (20th).

Event page

QO's contribution to the series follows on Sunday 10th February at Croydon Hill Deer Park.

These events are bigger than our QOFLs (Local 'forest' league) but still on a human scale and have toilets and often traders present.

See what lies in store for you throughout the season in our handy calendar (below). Venues vary from runnable forest, open hillside, moorland and mixed New Forest terrain.

On some of the better terrain in the South West, you get to rub shoulders with some of the best runners over nine events from autumn to spring.

Between 10 and 20 QO members usually go and car sharing is popular amongst this group.

Pre-entering on Fabian 4 guarantees you a map but not all clubs offer this facility.

"Galoppen"

It's a Swedish word- but what does it mean? Is it

1) A gallop?

2) A gallop, but open to all?

3) An 'open gala' (or lavish social event)?

4) A regional league?

5) A type of elk particular to Swedish forests?

6) Who cares - lets go anyway
