Race Format

The normal Street O format; you have 60 minutes to visit as many controls as possible, in any order, and return to the finish. Don’t forget to bring a watch (essential!) and a pen to write down your answers to the clues as you go around. A torch may also be useful especially if the weather is poor or you choose to take any unlit
routes.

Safety

There are a number of high traffic flow roads running through the area. The following roads will be marked out of bounds on the map and may not be crossed except at marked crossing points (pedestrian crossings, bridges and underpasses): Swandon Way, Trinity Road, the Wandsworth Bridge roundabout, and the Wandsworth one-way system (Wandsworth High Street, Armoury Way, Fairfield Street). A map with prohibited roads will be available for perusal before the start. Please take care crossing all roads. Wandsworth is also favoured with many green spaces; please take care if using routes across parks or commons and consider using a torch or headlamp. There will be a student pub crawl progressing through Wandsworth town centre (mostly avoided by courses) that evening (cause of the late change of venue); please take care around revellers who may be unable to look out for you.

Food & Drink

The Waterfront has a good drink selection and restaurant. Food available until 10pm.

Results

Results will be available on the SLOW website after the race.
