Chelsea Street-O Results, Tuesday 8 May

With apologies for the delay, here are the Final Results from Tuesday’s final Street-O of the season. Over 100 runners enjoyed Steven’s courses taking in Chelsea, Earl’s Court and, as a bonus, Brompton Cemetery!

We now also have the Final Series Results, have a look at your result! We had some really tight results overall, with the top 3 Men only separated by 1 point each!

I look forward to welcoming you again to another series starting in September.

Join us for the SEASON FINALE of the 2017-18 season of evening street orienteering races on Tuesday 8 May in Chelsea, West London.  Join us for an evening of checkpoint hunting & post race chat, food and drink!

The area includes the historic, Grade I listed, Brompton Cemetery. The cemetery is just to the west of The Pembroke, our base for the evening, and is open until 8pm. Those starting after 7pm should plan their routes accordingly to avoid the disappointment of missing out on this unique area!

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.

Almost 100 intrepid racers made it out to Crossharbour to enjoy the course set by Anders on what was a nice evening. We have new faces as winners this time, with Graham Law scoring the most points on the night closely followed by James Lambert; and Emily Budd the leading woman closely followed by Alison Hawe.

I hope you can join us for the season finale in the Earl’s Court area on Tuesday 8 May – there’s still all to play for in the league including the overall winner’s title. Details to follow shortly.

New Malden Street-O Results

(results updated 16/03 and series results added)

Here are the Final Results from last night’s New Malden Street Orienteering Race. Series Results have also been updated.

65 runners or groups tackled Bob and Bex’s fiendish course, where there were some big decisions to be made on which parts of the area to leave out.

Many of the runners with the highest scores had big time penalties, so the winner on the night was William White – by a single point – while Abi Weeds was fastest woman.

Next month we head east to the Isle Of Dogs so put Tuesday 10th April in your diary – details to follow shortly.

Richmond Street-O Results, 9 January

Here are the Final Results from last night’s Richmond Street O race.  There are also updated Series Results

Almost 100 racers were treated to an excellent course by Rebecca Slack and Bob Reed (thank you to them), from a great and very spacious location in beautiful Richmond. Runners were faced with a myriad of choices, particularly the trade-off between how much of Richmond and how much of St Margarets to visit.

Tom Davies and Abi Weeds were the winners on the night in what were closely fought contests – well done to all runners especially our many newcomers.

I hope you all enjoyed yourselves and that we’ll see many of you at the February race, organised by our friends at LOK in Central London (Bloomsbury). Please see February Race Details.

Matthias Mahr, street-o series coordinator

PS: Please note that for this race, we have only recorded “net” points after any deductions for lateness (1 point for every 3 seconds).
