“We had a great day at Oasby with Viktor winning the OI. On cross-country he really was mega, the course was great for the first run back with a few decent questions and he really took them on like it was nothing. Really didn’t expect the ground to be how it was after having so much rain this winter so a very big thankyou to the team at Oasby for making it possible to have these first few runs!”

Millie Jullef

Mystery Person

We’ve been coming to Oasby for years, and it always makes a great start and finish to the season.  You know the courses are going to be fair and the ground good.  Stuart and his team always go above and beyond!
