Fulham Street-O results

Here are the Final Results from yesterday’s Street Orienteering Race in Fulham.

Embarrassingly enough, I appear to have won, although very closely followed by relative newcomer Leo Muid in 2nd place and relative oldcomers James Lyne, Paul Nixon and James Fraser in 3rd to 5th.

In the ladies’ race, Harriet Boughton (running with Simon Martin) came out on top, followed by Sue Carter and Claire Heliot.

A big thank-you to all of you for attending and of course to Rebecca Slack (helped by Bob Reed) for organising a great race in a fab venue. I hope you all enjoyed yourselves and will join us for the next race in Tufnell Park on 10 October. This is organised by our friends at London Orienteering Klubb and more info can be found here

PS: We have two runners without any scores from yesterday, if this is you please get in touch.

Series Results

League series points are scored at each event, with 100 for the winner, 99 for 2nd place, 98 for 3rd, down to 1 point for everyone who finishes 100th place or lower. The organiser of the event scores points equal their best at any other race in the season. Men and women are included in the same combined results table for each race, and overall, but women’s positions will be highlighted in the results.

The overall results will be based on your best three scores in the series, and there will be prizes for the leading man and leading woman over the series. In the event of a tie, head-to-head results will be used.

Final results from the Wapping Evening Sprint which took place on 8 September, part of the London City Race 2017 weekend, are now available.

Please note that legs into and out of Control 204 (under the bridge near Wapping Dock) have been voided due to the control being vandalised during the race. Note that they continue to appear as normal legs in Winsplits/Splitsbrowser/Routegadget but are voided for the official results list appearing on SLOWeb and British Orienteering websites.

City Race 2017: Final Details

Final Details for the 2017 London City Race are now available here.

These supersede all previous information given about the races.

Travel Update: Saturday

There are engineering works affecting many of the lines through Moorgate station. Moorgate will still be served by the Hammersmith & City line (from King’s Cross through to Barking) and the Northern Line (unaffected).

We believe that the most affected will be people travelling from Paddington and Marylebone – an extra 10 minutes to travel via Bakerloo and Northern changing at Elephant & Castle. Other mainline stations shouldn’t be affected. The advice in all cases should be to use the TfL Journey Planner and allow an extra 10 minutes.

The races will be run with SIAC contactless punching in parallel with traditional SI cards. This guide provides details on how contactless punching operates, compared to regular punching.

Like all our Street-Os, this a public race – all are welcome. Please RSVP to the event via Facebook to let us know you are coming – you can also see who else is coming here and post queries.

Race HQ

Getting There

The Lillie Langtry is on 19 Lillie Road around the corner from West Brompton train/tube station on the District / Overground Lines.

Race Details

Entry fee is £2 for SLOW members, students and juniors; £4 for others. (Note we’ve had to increase the price from last year to cover the higher levy / insurance / general costs – but we still think it’s great value)

RegistrationBetween 1815 and 1930
Start TimesBetween 1830 and 1930

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 and it should be light enough for everyone for this last event.

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 2017-18 series page for more information.

How it works

Each event is scored separately and you have an hour to get as many points as you can. If you’re over an hour, you lose points so don’t be late. You don’t need any specialist equipment although a pen, watch and possibly torch can be helpful.

League series points are scored at each event, with 100 for the winner, 99 for 2nd place, 98 for 3rd, down to 1 point for everyone who finishes 100th place or lower. The organiser of the event scores points equal their best at any other race in the season. Men and women are included in the same combined results table for each race, and overall, but women’s positions will be highlighted in the results.

The overall results will be based on your best 5 scores in the series, and there will be prizes for the leading man and leading woman over the series. In the event of a tie, head-to-head results will be used.
