Special thanks to Paul, Matt, Chris and Russ for holding the fort whilst I put controls out and to the control collectors (Steve, Duncan, Ed, Tom and Conor). Also a big congratulations to our series prize winners:

The Street-O format has clues located at various points on a map. You have 60 minutes to visit as many of these as possible, in any order, and return to the finish. This guide provides general information about street orienteering.

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.

All competitors take part at their own risk. You MUST be over 16 to take part in this event, unless you are accompanied by a parent or guardian. This is a condition of our insurance.

Results will be available on the SLOW website shortly after the event. Check the 2016-17 series page for more information.

Bethnal Green Street-O Results

A great turnout of 93 runners made it all the way to East London for the Bethnal Greeen Street-O: I hope you all enjoyed a very different part of London, including some housing estates, canals and a lovely avenue through Victoria Park.

Series leader Matthew Schepisi made it a very convincing fourth win and is now guaranteed the series title: congratulations! Katrin Harding, in full training for the London Marathon, was first woman and in a creditable 8th place overall.

Here are the Final Results from the race and the updated Series Results – any comments please let me know.

Thanks to Elaine Battson from our friends at London Orienteering Klubb for organising, and I hope to see many of you back south in Tooting on Tuesday 11 April – details coming soon.

Results from the Wimbledon Common Night-O

The penultimate race of SLOW’s 2016-17 Night-O series was held on Wimbledon Common on Tuesday 28 February 2017. Paul Couldridge won the event overall with Heather Findlay the first lady home.

Series results after four events are now available here.

Paul’s win takes him to a maximum 300 points, but Scott Collier has 200 with one race remaining, due to his organising the latest event. He can join Paul to tie the series by winning the final event. In the women’s competition, only a virtually impossible high placing from Julie Murphy can prevent Sue Carter from keeping the top spot.
