Angel Street-O Results and Series Results

Thank you to our friends at London Orienteering Klubb for organising this Tuesday’s Street-O. Almost 100 people enjoyed the nice (if windy) conditions and you can find the Race Results here.

With 6 out of 8 races completed, the Series Results standings are starting to firm up too, but there’s all to play for in the last two races. Join us on Tuesday 10th of March for the next race in Highgate, North London – details coming soon!

Any queries please to

Wimbledon Street-O results

*Final Results below & Series Results added* And join us at the for the next Street-O on Tuesday 11 February, organised by our friends at LOK (and they’d like you to pre-enter please, see the form!)

It was great to see more than 100 people at our Wimbledon Street-O last night, including loads of newcomers. And weren’t we all lucky with the weather! I hope you enjoyed your time and will join us for future races including our Barnes Night-O in two weeks and the next Street-O in February.

Here are the Final Results for the race, which was very ably organised by first-time duo Marc and Natalia. Marc says: “Thanks to everyone for coming by and making this the race the one with the biggest attendance of this Street series events. The foxes were scared about how many people were running and looking for different points in Wimbledon. Some of you were impressed with how gorgeous some houses were and tested your physical conditions after Christmas on the hills of Wimbledon Village. On the other hand, the orienteers who picked the South Wimbledon area found the streets so quiet, including the cemetery. We hope to see you again and encouraged the newcomers to join us in further events. Moltes gràcies!”

Any results queries to please and I’ll be posting updated Series Results by the weekend.

Northfields Street-O Results

Well done to the 60 hardy souls who braved last night’s wet and windy weather to chase points around Northfields and Ealing. First time organiser Ralph Dadswell did a sterling job assisted by Duncan Grassie, so thank you very much to them!

We have now published the Race Results as well as the updated Series Results after Race 4. Well done to Matt Vokes and Lizzie Broughton for convincing victories.

For our next Street Orienteering Race we return to our heartland of Wimbledon, with details available soon. Please note this race will be on Wednesday 15th of January, rather than the usual Tuesday. We hope to see many of you there and in the meantime have a great Christmas.
