OK Nuts 2016 Final Details

Please note that the course lengths are now regular long distance courses, not middle distance as previously advertised.

Event Location

Glovers WoodGlover’s Wood is a rarely used gem! The area is compact with a long steeply-sided valley which has many contour features and elsewhere various earthworks. It is mostly natural woodland with trees widely spaced in the valleys and little undergrowth so runnability is good. It is located ten miles south of Dorking, with the nearest postcode centred on RH5 5BP. Parking and the assembly field is 350m to the north, along the east side of Partridge Lane at TQ223410.

  • The Heather Monro Trophy, named after SLOW’s illustrious World Champs Medal Winner, is awarded to the first woman on the Short Brown course.
  • The Margaret Loveless Trophy is awarded to best Junior, in memory of one of SLOW’s most loyal and popular members.
  • Commemorative coasters are awarded to Senior Long and Junior A class winners.
