Hello and welcome
You are all very welcome to the new season of evening Street Orienteering Races. These are friendly, easy events open to everyone and based at a pub around London. You have one hour to find as many clues as you can – race, run or walk as you wish!

How it works
Each event is scored separately and you have an hour to get as many points as you can. If you’re over an hour, you lose points so don’t be late. You don’t need any specialist equipment although a pen, watch and possibly torch can be helpful.
League series points are scored at each event, with 100 for the winner, 99 for 2nd place, 98 for 3rd, down to 1 point for everyone who finishes 100th place or lower. The organiser of the event scores points equal their best at any other race in the season. Men and women are included in the same combined results table for each race, and overall, but women’s positions will be highlighted in the results.
The overall results will be based on your best 5 scores in the series, and there will be prizes for the leading man and leading woman over the series. In the event of a tie, head-to-head results will be used.
