Kingston is an ancient market town on the banks of the River Thames, steeped in history and culture. In the tenth century Saxon Kings were crowned on Kingston’s Coronation Stone. Surrey County Hall, built at the end of the 19th century, is one of many notable buildings, although since boundary changes in 1965 Kingston has no longer been in Surrey.
The race will be in the historic urban town centre, with lots of alleyways, and nearby riverside parks and residential areas.
The map is 1:5000, updated 2018. Both SIAC and regular SI cards will be used for the race.

The 38th Box Hill Fell race took place on Saturday 19th January 2019. Thanks to organiser Harold Wyber and the team of volunteer helpers.
Update Monday 21st 10:45am – Sorry, we correct the results.
The Fabian4 entry form allowed people to enter as M45, M55, etc. but there were no prize categories for these. They should therefore have been re-categorised as M40, M50, etc but it was all quite rushed this year and that manual change fell through the cracks, sorry. We have now done this and it affects the summary results.
· Jean Shotter becomes the 3rd placed W50.
· Andrew Reeves becomes the 3rd placed M40.
· Natasha Cendrowicz becomes the leading W40 pushing the previously reported 1st & 2nd runners down one place.

Here are the Race Results and Series Results from last night’s Street Orienteering Race in Ealing. Over 75 runners enjoyed Keith’s great courses in a new area for orienteering!
It was a tight fight at the top of the Men’s race with experienced orienteers Nick Barrable, Ed Catmur and (making a cameo appearance) Murray Strain the top 3. Vinh Hoang was top woman, followed by Charlotte Levin and Camilla Brueton.
