The normal Street-O format – controls will be clues. You have 60 minutes to visit as many controls as possible, in any order, and return to the finish. SI will be used to time the start and finish, please bring your SI card if you have one. It will be an advantage to start early and run in daylight. A torch is recommended if you are out in the dark. Don’t forget to bring a pen to write down your answers to the clues as you go around, and a watch (both essential!). General information about street orienteering.
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.
The pub serves food until 2100.
Results will be available on the SLOW website shortly after the event.
