The series resumes in mid January at the (uh-oh, contrived alliteration alert...) dewightfully wunnable West Woods of Wiltshire.

What else lies in store for you throughout the season? Check out our handy calendar (below).

League tables after two events



Venues vary from runnable forest, open hillside, moorland and mixed New Forest terrain.

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

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.

Fixtures correct as at 23 November 2019

Details in bold are links to the club's website, the rest are just fixture listings on the BOF website.
