Events List & Recent Results

This is primarily a list of events organised by HOC, but it includes some others which we think HOC members ought to be aware of - particularly if club honours are at stake! All HOC events are open to non-HOC members unless otherwise stated. If it's not advertised here, it's not a HOC event.
Details of events in the distant future are now shown even if venue and officials have not been confirmed. HOC members should view "TBC" in the organiser column as a request to volunteer - before the Vice-Chair has to twist arms!

Event Levels (see BOF Events Guideline A for full details):

Courses are often described using a colour-coding system:

Colour Typical distance Technical difficulty
Black 12km Hard
Brown 10km Hard
Blue 6.5km Hard
Green 4.5km Hard
Light Green 4km Quite Difficult
Orange 3km Moderate
Yellow 2km Easy
White 1.5km Very easy

In general, the darker the colour, the longer and more difficult the course. Juniors and novices can work their way up from white/yellow as they get older and more experienced, whilst the shorter hard courses are appropriate for those with lower levels of physical fitness. Short and, occasionally, long colour variants may be available if the event is large enough. Age class competition can be provided by mapping colours to age classes. Mappings vary depending on the numbers of courses available - see the details for the particular event or BOF Events Guideline B for more information.
