Normal Street-O format with clues located at each control site. You have 60 minutes to visit as many controls as possible, in any order, and return to the finish. The map is 1:12500. All checkpoints are in lit areas, and it is possible to visit all on lit (albeit sometimes dimly) roads and paths. Some runners may choose to take unlit paths in some places, so a headtorch is advisable.
SI will be used to time the start and finish, so please bring your SI card if you have one. Don’t forget to bring a pen to write down your answers to the clues as you go around, and a watch. General information about street orienteering.
Fluorescent clothing is recommended for safety. 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.
Food, drink and active debate about optimum route choice at the pub.
Results will be available on the SLOW website shortly after the event.
