Wessex Region Night League

The Wessex Region Night League features night events organised through the winter months by WIM, WSX, SARUM & SOC.

Season 2020-21


Having reviewed the announcements yesterday, as well as the guidance set out by BOF, it is with a heavy heart that we have taken the decision to cancel this year’s Night League. We should not consciously be encouraging the movement of people across different areas, particularly now that the large proportion of areas are in Tier 4. Also, it is likely that the current restrictions will be in place for some weeks/months to come and this makes the re-arrangement and coordination of events much harder to plan for, whilst also overloading the end of the winter season before the evenings get lighter.

We hope you can appreciate that this is the right decision to make. We would encourage organisers to share their planned events on MapRun for local participants to try their hands at. However, we remind all club members that movement from or within Tier 4 is not permitted other than for essential journeys and local exercise. We should not be traveling long distances to try our hands at any provided MapRuns whilst these restrictions are in place. We would also understand if organisers do not wish to share their planned events as Maprun and instead save these for the 2021/22 Night League, brought to you by Oxford Astrazeneca.

Jo Pickering comments: 
Another event down and big thanks to Sarum for putting on this forest event at Martin Down. There have been a few changes in the ladies side of things with a good run from Jo on Monday night but all still to play for! 
Also to update you on changing fixtures from the recent lockdown. Here is the latest: 

Wednesday 23 Dec, BAOC Winchester has unfortunately got to be cancelled due to not being able to obtain permissions. This will now hopefully be 5th Jan with a new location at Hogmoor - Forest event and quite technical! Allan will 100% confirm shortly SOC's postponed event from 3rd Dec is now on 14th Jan and being held in Brockenhurst. They are hoping to put on an additional event later on to make up for the event lost. 
WIM's Alderholt (from 2nd Nov) will now be held on 25th Jan and WIM are looking at moving Blandford event to sometime in Feb - date TBC

I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and hope your plans haven't changed too much with the recent announcements. Let's hope no more events will need to be re-scheduled in the New Year and look forward to seeing you all again in 2021. Keep safe."
