Oxon 40/20 Feedback 2019

A selection of comments from entrants after the event:

"I would just like to thank you for a fabulous day yesterday.
From the moment of entering the car park, the whole day is so well organised, and everyone is so friendly and smiley.
The folk in the kitchen were wonderful, a fine spread!! And so friendly.
The route was brilliant. I did this event last year (my first ever LDWA event), and became a member straight away. The route this year was even more beautiful, a tad harder, but I loved it.
Thank you LDWA for a beautiful day. Please pass on my thanks to All.
"As mentioned on the day I think the idea of re-using checkpoints works well in terms of making the walk easier to organise and having halls with facilities.
Most people said the RD was very clear, though a large number of people went off-course just after the Urn (but easily got back on route). It managed to be classic kind of route whose views especially stood out, but also with interesting variations e.g. after Bledlow Ridge both times and before Pishill deeper into the bluebell woods.
Hopefully next year I will be marshalling or helping again, and definitely interested in the Marshals' Walk.
"I walked this year but intend to marshal in 2020, I joined TVLDWA in January this year. What a great event, as always.
"Thanks for a great event again, 3rd time entered and will hopefully be back for next year.
However, I have now noticed that there is an error on your results page.
My wife is down as having completed the 33-mile distance, when in fact she completed the full 40-mile distance.
I unfortunately had to miss out the 'loop' back to Bledlow checkpoint and dropped to the 33-mile.
(My wife has now gone on a birdwatching holiday to Bulgaria, without reliable email connection, hence why I am writing this.)
[The error is now fixed.]
"Just to thank your group for all their endeavours in staging yesterday's Oxon. Fourteen of us from Hillingdon AC did the 20-mile route, and the consensus was that it was about the 'nicest-ever' course.
As always, excellent catering, and we all had a great day.
Our thanks to all involved. See you next year.
