Oxford's COVID Alert Level is High (tier 2). The same rules apply as if you were meeting in a park as everything is outdoors:
Updated 16th October 2020.
We’re fully flexible. If you change your mind or if the government guidelines change, you can either choose a new date or we’ll give you a refund.
If it's patchy rain, you can spend more time in the pub breaks or stop elsewhere on the route: the game’s flexible.
If it's really bad on one day, you can either switch which day you play, or even start one day and finish the next.
If it's a total wash-out and you can't get round, we’ll give your money back, even if you've started the game.
Don’t worry, if you get stuck you can ask for a hint and Bess will get you on your way!
We make sure no-one ever gets completely stuck.
It’s X walking but you can take as many breaks as you like.
