Oggie 8 2015

The  Oggie 8 will be taking a break in 2016

After running the Oggie 8 for 8 years we have decided to take a break in 2016. We are grateful to all the competitors who have supported the event for the last 8 years, and if there is sufficient demand we are likely to run the event again in 2017.

The 2015 Oggie 8 is now complete

As you all know it was our 8th year of running the event and as it’s also OVMRO’s 50th Anniversary year, we were hoping to make it extra special!

I think we achieved this, it will certainly be one to remember – we had a fantastic turnout, both in terms of entrants and the support team, a thoroughly enjoyable after party, and the added bonus of beautiful weather which lasted the whole day.

Well done and a huge thanks to all our entrants, we had 22 teams and 80+ participants, a really good turnout in support of raising money for OVMRO

Congratulations to our winners, “Siabod Shifters”, who completed the Challenge in an incredible 5 hrs 55 mins.
In 2nd place were “Excused Games”, in 6 hrs 46 mins, followed closely in 3rd by “John’s PJ’s” in 6 hrs 55 mins.

Many thanks to all those who supported in whatever capacity, both 333 members, team members and other volunteers; you helped make the event a great success and the Event couldn’t have been held without you.

So far the 2015 Oggie 8 has raised £5,055.00.
