The next Street Orienteering Race will take place in beautiful Richmond on Tuesday 8 December & thereafter. This race will use MapRun, so you will need a smartphone and/or Garmin watch to take part. However, you will have two choices: Either take advantage of our ‘map supply and bag drop’ service on the evening of Tuesday 8th. Or do the race at a time of your choice thereafter, until Thursday 31st of December.
If you do the race on the Tuesday, you will not be able to see the course in advance and therefore anyone running that evening will receive a 20-point bonus to their score.
Our meeting point is the Richmond Canoe Club on the riverside, about a 15 minute walk from Richmond station. Start and finish are nearby.
