Saturday 8th July, 3pm, The Didcot Runners Bake Off
Saturday 19th August, 12pm. Punting in Oxford. (sorry, no punting emoji).

Read on for further info, but please take note of these dates and keep an eye on this page for updates.

Social Thames Run. A casual group run along the Thames path ending with lunch at the Waterfront Cafe, Benson. There will be multiple distances available, ranging from 5 to 15 miles. 

Bake Off. This will be a chance for us to get competitive without running, whilst showing off some of our artistic flair. Basically an excuse to eat lots of cake. This will be held at the Plough Inn, Long Wittenham which has a lovely long garden and should provide the perfect setting. There will be a prize for the best cake voted by you. Bring the family along too.

Punting. This could be fun.... If you haven't tried punting before, I hightly recommend it. It's a fun technique to learn. Starting from Magdalen Bridge, Oxford, this is a great section of the river Cherwell. We can go out for 1 or 2 hours, costing around £5 each for 1 hour or £10 each for 2 hours (TBC). We are also able to take food and drink aboard. 

It'd be nice to see some initial feedback on these events. Just to get an idea of attendance. 

Thanks and well done to London Marathon runners... Great stuff!
