Brentford Street-O. Tuesday 12 March

The seventh race of the 2018-19 season of evening street orienteering races around London will be held in Brentford (West London). Brentford currently features a half-ghost High Street: the whole South side of it is facing demolition in the next couple of months. Last chance to see glimpses of industrial Brentford of the past!

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 and hi-vis clothing would be sensible.

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 2018-19 series page for more information.
