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.

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

Matthias Mahr (Street-O coordinator)

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