London Bridge Street-O Results

Here are the results from the London Bridge Street-O held on Tuesday 9 September 2014.

Planner’s comments

There was a great turn out for the first in the 2014-15 Street O series with a total of 99 participants. For a number of people, this was their first street orienteering experience – I hope you enjoyed it and are keen to come back again for more! I tried to design the course to give a variety of route choices, and it seems this was the case, with some people chosing to stick south of the river, and others exploring the areas on the north bank.

Thanks as usual to all who helped on the night, particularly Mike and Don on the start, and Jane, Katy, Vince and whoever else helped with the seemingly never-ending task of marking maps.

Don’t forget to bring a pen to write down your answers to the clues as you go around, an SI card if you have one, and a watch so that you aren’t late back! You may find a torch/head-torch and compass useful too, although many don’t take one.
