Race Format

Usual 60-minute format. Maps will be printed on waterproof paper. Don’t forget to bring a pen to write down your answers to the clues as you go around, and a watch. You may also wish to bring a small torch or mini headlamp to help see the clues. General information about street orienteering.

Safety

Fluorescent clothing is recommended for safety. As with all Street-O races, you will need to cross roads with traffic during the race, some of which may be busy – take extreme care when crossing all roads. All competitors take part at their own risk. YOU MUST REPORT BACK TO THE FINISH AFTER YOUR RUN (EVEN IF YOU DECIDE TO GIVE UP) SO THAT WE DO NOT GO OUT LOOKING FOR YOU!

Christmas Twist

To be revealed on the night.

Post-Race

The race is doubling up as the SLOW Christmas social so please do stay and chat afterwards. We will provide a big pot of casserole, mulled wine and mince pies for a contribution of £3. Feel free to bring along any other drinks you want (there are plenty of shops nearby).

Results

Results will be available on the SLOW website shortly after the event, along with overall results for the Street-O series so far.
