Here are the Results from the Street-O held in Greenwich and the Isle of Dogs on Tuesday 13 October 2015.
Overall series results will be published following next month’s event which is being hosted by LOK in the West End.
Lost property and uncollected maps from the first two races will be at registration for the next one – apologies for forgetting to put the last lot out this time!
Thanks for coming to Greenwich, and to the Kings Arms for accommodating us! It was our first time organising an event, and potentially underestimated the number of people needed to do registration and answer questions, so thank you for your patience all whilst queueing. We hope you enjoyed the split map and it gave a good challenge on route planning. Also, the idea of running under the Thames in a Street-O was hopefully something different and on the return journey the challenge of running up ‘tunnel mountain’ was suitably unique! Maritime Greenwich is such a fabulous area and strikingly lit at night-time.
Thanks to all for being understanding on the slight mis-location of number 5, which many pointed out, and credit was given to all you visited and noted it, but all other points seem to have been located and confirmed to be in the correct place. Although, to the person who demanded points for having visited number 12 and found being no question for, whom I kindly credited for the points without checking, shame on you.. there is no #12 on the front! Same goes for people guessing on door colours, tolerance was definitely allowed due to poorly lit areas, but white and black are distinctly different and very discernible in the dark!
In more upbeat news, thanks definitely go to Rich and Vicki Kirk, and Shiv’s mother for helping with the marking, and to Don for printing the maps! And we hope to see you at another event soon.
