Scores after three of the five races. The overall results for the series will be your best three scores. There will be prizes for the leading man and leading woman over the series.
Thanks to Alex Owen for a great race and it was great to see over 100 runners enjoying themselves on a lovely evening.
I hope you can join us at the next Street-O race on 12 March in Brentford (West London), with details to follow shortly.

Here are the results from the Esher Common Night-O races on Tuesday 22nd January 2019. Congratulations to all who turned out and thanks to Alan and Diane Leakey for organizing.
I must admit that I was unimpressed when it started to snow whilst we were putting out controls writes Alan.
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.
We owe Natasha Cendrowicz a prize.
Rob McCaffrey has a 10 minute video of the race – with nearly everyone pictured. The heading picture is from the video.
Thanks for braving the weather. Thanks also to Don, Gordon, Paul C, Sue, Duncan & Paul S for helping. Please volunteer to help at the next ones if you can. I wanted to use the south-west corner for a change given we had the southern start. I tried to have the short course relatively easy to start then getting a bit harder in the middle. For the long course the middle loop was quite challenging. Well done for being up to it.

I have one green bag left in the pub with a black thermal, gloves etc in it. It looks like it could be a military bag of some sort. If it’s yours please contact Don ( )

The 2018 OK Nuts Trophy Races took place on November 25th, in conjunction with the Southern Championships, at Hindhead Common & The Devil’s Punch Bowl.
The event was a Southern Navigators / South London Orienteers collaboration.
Courses were tough, at the upper end of the length range and with more than usual climb, testing both physical endurance and navigation and route choice in the terrain.
(Pictures are from this year’s British Championships races at Balmoral, credit: On The Red Line.)
The OK Nuts Trophy was won by Ben Mitchell of Swansea Bay Orienteering Club who ran the M21E course in 108 minutes. The Heather Monro Trophy was won by Megan Carter-Davies of Mid-Wales Orienteering Club who ran the W21E course in 86 minutes. There were 700 runners in all.
The junior trophy was awarded to Lyra Medlock of Wessex Orienteers.
On the longest course for each age group the first runner from the three southern associations becomes Southern Champion 2018. In the open classes the champions are William White and Lucy Butt, both of the Salisbury Club SARUM.
From SLOW, Matthias Mahr (M40), Lyudmila Gotseva (W45), and Olin Davies (M16) are Southern Champions for 2018.

Here are the results from the final event of 2018’s MTB-O series, held on Sunday 18th November 2018 from Holmbury St Mary. We had 37 individuals and pairs taking part.
Mark Humphrey won the event, visiting most controls and judging it well to come in with 90 seconds spare against the two hour time limit. Sid Hardy was second and Tom Davies third. The leading solo woman was Catherine Osborn, who judged it even more finely coming in with less than 30 seconds before the limit.
Thanks to the organiser Julian Hemsted.
