Richmond Street-O, Tuesday 8th December

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.

Wimbledon Common Score orienteering Challenge

What Is It? Our dedicated November orienteering activity is now live, and this time we have something different for you: The Wimbledon Common Score-O Challenge!

This works in exactly the same way as our monthly Street Orienteering race – you have one hour to find as many controls as possible – except that it’s on the lovely forest/park area of Wimbledon Common. 

When Can I Do It? The activity is open from now until the end of November, when final results will be collated. It is not an organised activity so you can do it whenever you like. As an extra incentive, results will count towards the Street-O series table.

Who Can Do It? This activity is free and open to anyone, although all competitors take part at their own risk. Please note that you should follow the latest government guidelines at all times, which include this paragraph relating to permitted travel: to spend time or exercise outdoors – this should be done locally wherever possible, but you can travel to do so if necessary (for example, to access an open space)

Where Is It? The activity starts and finishes in the car park of the Wimbledon Common Windmill, which is easily accessed from many parts of South London

How Does It Work?

1. Download and print this map to use for navigation.

2. If you haven’t already, install MapRunF on your phone and find the event under UK > South London > StreetO > Wimbledon Common. If you have a Garmin watch, you don’t need to take your phone on the run if you install MapRunG.

3. When ready, press ‘Go To Start’ and the App will automatically detect when you’re at the start and start your time. Each time you reach a control, the App will ‘beep’ and/or buzz to indicate successful passage. Get as many points as you can within 60 minutes and return to base, where the App will automatically Finish and upload your score. Done!

Scoring:  As usual, points will be awarded according to the first digit of each control number (so controls 10, 11 etc. are worth 10 points; 20, 21 etc. are worth 20 points and so on.) There is a stiff 30 point per minute penalty for lateness so it pays to be back on time!

GPS accuracy: We have tested all the controls for GPS-worthiness (although you may have to wait a few seconds for your GPS track to catch up.) If, despite being in the right place, a control refuses to register, please get in touch afterwards and I’ll see what I can do.

Questions? If you have any questions, do ask them on our Facebook event page or email me.

With many thanks to course setter Don McKerrow and MapRun guru Peter Foulkes.

Box Hill Fell Race 2021 : Postponed

We regret to announce that we will not be staging the Box Hill Fell Race this coming January. While we have considered modifications to allow us to hold the race in a COVID-safe manner, a combination of landowner restrictions and the extent of measures required to adhere to current guidelines have led us to the difficult decision to not proceed with the race on its usual date.

We do hope to be able to stage this race later in year, as and when conditions and restriction levels permit although we cannot at this stage indicate when this might be. Please visit the SLOW website and look out for our social media communications for further updates.

Harold Wyber (Race Director, on behalf of South London Orienteers)

OK NUTS Invitation

Our Annual OK Nuts Trophy event is on Sunday November 22nd.

Update: 2pm November 11th

Our plan is to put on the event if and when the COVID rules allow, giving reasonable notice but not opening entries until near the date.

We will co-ordinate with other south-east clubs, as we’re all in pretty much the same position of needing to know what rules apply when. We’re currently looking at the last weekend in January as a possibility.

Update: 10:30pm November 1st

Our understanding from yesterday’s statements is that government regulations to reduce the spread of COVID will mean it is not possible to hold the OK Nuts on November 22nd, as was intended as recently as two days ago. Sorry. We will write more later in the week.

Update: 9:30am October 31st

Entries will not open on Sunday 1st November as previously announced.

Overnight there have been government leaks of a full lockdown in England for a month starting next week. The reports say the Prime Minister is to give a speech on Monday to make the announcement. 

Given that this has been the common way policy is tested prior to official announcement it makes sense to hold off opening entries until Wednesday to save us all a lot of trouble.

If entries do open on Wednesday it will be at 9am.

Update: 11pm October 30th

Entries will open at 9am, Sunday 1st November, when the event will appear on SiEntries.

Limit on Entries

The event may sell out as we do not have as much car parking as we originally hoped.

The overall number of entries we can accept is 430.

If the event sells out we will operate a waiting list through SiEntries. This will be used if people withdraw, as they might for COVID related reasons.

Possible Increase in Entry Numbers

We have added a question to the entry form to get information about the number of cars as this is what is limiting entries. (Please email the entries secretary if you plan to bring a camper van or minibus.)

If, when the numbers limit is reached we have space for more cars, then we will invite from the waiting list. Government guidance on car sharing is reproduced below.

If you choose an early start block

In accordance with the COVID protocols and pressure on car parking, it will be very helpful that if you choose an early start block then you leave as soon as you can after finishing and downloading, and, optionally, buying refreshments.

The official guidance taken from Coronavirus (COVID-19): safer travel guidance for passengers

Car sharing

It is difficult to socially distance during car journeys. You should avoid sharing a car with someone from outside your household or your support bubble unless you can practise social distancing. You can reduce the risk of transmission by:

  • opening windows for ventilation
  • travelling side by side or behind other people, rather than facing them, where seating arrangements allow
  • facing away from each other
  • considering seating arrangements to maximise distance between people in the vehicle
  • cleaning your car between journeys using standard cleaning products – make sure you clean door handles and other areas that people may touch
  • asking the driver and passengers to wear a face covering

( end of October 30th update)

The Races

There are trophy races for juniors and seniors.

The racing will be at Winterfold, first-class forest orienteering terrain on the Greensand Ridge in Surrey.

Previous map (Routegadget OK Nuts 2015)

We are fortunate to have a great base for the competition at the Bentley Copse Scout Campsite. Parking, facilities, start and finish are close, but not too close, together.

It is an excellent opportunity to enjoy individual start, classic distance age-class competition should you wish, with the British Orienteering age classes each mapped to a colour-coded course for the OK Nuts, and this year also for the South Central Association (SCOA) Long Distance Champs and the South-East Association (SEOA) Long Champs.

The OK Nuts

The OK Nuts is SLOW’s annual premier forest orienteering race. It is named after an orienteering club – OK Nutfielders – from the early days of the sport in England. The event was first held in 1977 at the Devil’s Punch Bowl, and has been held nearly every year since.

The OK Nuts Trophy is named for Mike Wells-Cole, a British Champion and a member of Nutfielders OK, who died in 1976. The trophy is awarded to the winner of the senior men’s course.

The Heather Monro Trophy is awarded to the winner of the senior women’s course. Heather grew up orienteering with SLOW and had an illustrious international orienteering career topped by a bronze medal at the 2005 World Championships. (Also in 2005, Winterfold hosted a race in the Orienteering World Cup – see link to some photos in Terrain below.)

History of the OK Nuts, and list of past winners

COVID

The event is prepared and will run in accordance with government approved guidelines published by British Orienteering. If we all observe the protocols, which should not be difficult, the sport is almost perfect for maintaining social distancing and having no contact with shared equipment.

British Orienteering – COVID Safe Orienteering

A key part of the protocols is the need for everyone to read and keep to a code of conduct. Please be seen to do this, before during and after racing.
The COVID-19 Code of Conduct

  • Please act as an ambassador for our sport at all times and consider how your actions may appear in the eyes of landowners and members of the public.
  • Please maintain social distancing at all times, keeping 2m from other runners, volunteers and members of the public.
  • Please use your own hand sanitizer at intervals, and that provided by the event when visiting toilets, at the start and at download.

The protocols mean there will no on-the-day prize-giving.

Possible Cancellation

We recognise the event may need to be cancelled because of COVID developments, even possibly at the last minute. Because of this we are not opening entries until Sunday 1st November.

Risks

We will carry out a comprehensive risk assessment and take steps to mitigate risk. Nevertheless this is an outdoor sport in forest terrain in what may be wintery conditions. Competitors take part at their own risk.

Newcomers

An event such as this that preserves social distancing is not suitable for complete beginners in the sport.

If you are new to the sport and are not yet a member of British Orienteering, may we suggest our permanent courses? For example you could try a delightful Orange course on the heathland of Esher Common?

You may also like to watch a new series of films about starting in the sport. Get Out & Go YouTube playlist.

Terrain

Winterfold is lovely on a nice day and great for challenging orienteering whatever the weather. It was used for the British Championships in 2013 and the OK Nuts in December 2015.

It was the venue for an orienteering World Cup race in 2005. Some photos. Our planner this year planned the World Cup Sprint Race in Battersea Park the day after. It was one of the earliest big races in that format. Here Andy is talking to the media.

from Google Streetview

In 2015 we said:

Winterfold is a mix of gentle and steep slopes, with many reentrants, gullies and paths. There are also sections of detailed broken ground and runnability is generally good. It offers a complete physical and technical challenge requiring both route choice and fine navigation skills.

Location

We are delighted that we will be hosted at Bentley Copse.

Dogs are not permitted.

We have the use of permanent toilets (please wear a mask inside the blocks.)

Tom & Julie (British & Continental Catering) are planning to come for the sale of their popular hot food and drinks.

Please note that access roads in the area are narrow, often single track and can be busy, including with cyclists. Because of this we will ask cars to make their approach on Hound House Road from the north and to leave to the south.

from Google Streetview

Unfortunately it is very difficult if not impossible to get close to the event using public transport.

Courses

You are welcome to choose any course, subject to a start time being available.

At entry time please choose an age class (not a colour), unless you wish to “run down” (that is a shorter course than your age class competition.) Please see the “Entries” section.

There is a full set of twelve colour-coded courses from black to white, plus a special “M16 Blue” .

The Black course is planned with the aim that a top runner would take approxinately 67 minutes. It will be about 12km, with significant climb.

M/W16 and under – please do not choose to “run up” at M/W18 or above. This is because the longer courses require unmarshalled road crossings.

M80, M85 – The OK Nuts and SEOA Champs are run on the VSG (Very Short Green) course; the SCOA champs are normally run on the SG (Short Green) course (which is the National Guidelines course for these age groups) but this year are on the VSG course for consistency with the other competitions.

The course/age class relationships are as follows.

Entries

British Orienteering members only.

Enter via SiEntries.

Results will be presented in the first case by age class, for the OK Nuts, and also the SCOA and SEOA Long Championships.

If you will run in the age class competition please choose the age class you want, not the colour, and allow the system to pick the course.

You can choose to run your own class or to run up (a longer course, or maybe the same course but in a “higher” class) e.g. W50 can choose W21, W35, W40, W45 or W50. (Or indeed the men’s classes for those age groups.)

Only if you do not want to take part in the main age class racing, choose a colour + “Other” e.g. Orange – Other. Entering that way means you will not count in the OK Nuts or Association Champs.

The races will use contactless SI Timing.

The entry system will offer a choice of 15 minute start blocks within the three hour start window 10am – 1pm. Courses will close at 14:45. Please bear this in mind, especially if entering the black and brown courses which have the longest expected winning times.

The race could sell out

There is a limit on the number of runners we can manage. We will be able to accommodate the sort of numbers we have seen at the busier OK Nuts in recent years, but not more.

So it is possible, if perhaps unlikely, that some (or most, or all) courses will sell out. We will operate a waiting list if the race proves more popular than usual, so that a place booked by someone who cannot come at the last minute can be offered to someone who could not otherwise run.

To have a full choice of start time and to secure your entry it may be best to enter early.

Standard entry closes Midnight Sunday 15th November, or when courses are full. Late entries will be possible in the final week to 6pm Friday 20th, where we have availability.

There is no Entry on the Day.

We hope to allocate and publish individual start times and publish final details on Tuesday 17th.

Winterfold

This post is now superseded by the Event Invitation.

We are preparing for the OK Nuts event at Winterfold on November 22nd. Of course the COVID situation and necessary protocols are to the fore in our preparations.

We will fill out this event invitation over the next few weeks but we will not open entries until a few weeks beforehand.

There will be a strict limit on numbers. We expect however that by using allocated start times we will be able to accommodate the numbers we have seen at the OK Nuts in recent years.

COVID Protocols

The event will be prepared and will run in accordance with government approved guidelines published by British Orienteering.

British Orienteering – COVID Safe Orienteering

It’s really important that we all are seen to take the protocols seriously, before during and after racing so please read and abide by
the COVID-19 Code of Conduct.

Additionally please note that an event such as this that preserves social distancing is not suitable for complete beginners in the sport.

If you are new to the sport and want to have practice and gain confidence to tackle a course at an event such as this may be suggest our permanent courses? For example you could run a delightful Orange course on the heathland of Esher Common?

Terrain

Winterfold is a top class area for our sport. It was used for the British Championships in 2013 and the OK Nuts in December 2015.

from Google Streetview

In 2015 we said:

Winterfold is a mix of gentle and steep slopes, with many reentrants, gullies and paths. There are also sections of detailed broken ground and runnability is generally good. It offers a complete physical and technical challenge requiring both route choice and fine navigation skills.

Routegadget for OK Nuts 2015

Courses

We expect to provide a full set of twelve colour-coded courses from Black to White, via four Greens.

Facilities

Finding car parking for orienteering can be difficult for this area. Thanks to the efforts of the 2015 organising team we think this is solved this time round. We should have a great event centre that will support the COVID protocols (as used by SLOW at Glover’s Wood earlier this month) to be smoothly deployed.

And as a bonus the starts and finish will be close by.

from Google Streetview

But note access roads in the area are narrow, often single track and can be busy, including with cyclists.

September Street-O live on Maprun

Welcome one and all to the 2020-21 Street Orienteering Series, offering a 60-minute ‘score’ race around a different area of London once a month.

Given the current situation, we have decided to hold the first (September) race as a Virtual Event – meaning you can do it anytime between now and the end of September, when we’ll generate the final results. As before we’ll be using the MapRun app to help with this.

The start and finish for the race is outside The Somers Town Coffee House, which  is a few minutes’ walk from Euston, Kings Cross and St Pancras stations. The race takes you around some really fun parts of London including the new Kings Cross development, Camden, Regent’s Park and Bloomsbury.

AddressThe Somers Town Coffee House, 60 Chalton Street, London NW1 1HS
Latitude/longitude51.5299, -0.1301
OS grid referenceTQ298829
MapsGoogle Maps, OpenStreetMap

As this is a virtual event, entry is free! Here’s how it works:

1. Download and print this map to use for navigation.

2. If you haven’t already, install MapRunF on your phone and find the event under UK > South London > StreetO > KingsCross. If you have a Garmin watch, you don’t need to take your phone on the run if you install MapRunG.

3. When ready, press ‘Go To Start’ and the App will automatically detect when you’re at the start and start your time. Get as many points as you can within 60 minutes and return to base, where the App will automatically Finish and upload your score. Done!

A few other important points: 1. The area has a number of busy roads, not least the Euston Road cutting E-W near the bottom of the map. Please cross all roads carefully! 2. There is no official facility to drop your kit during your run (including at the pub, which won’t know about the orienteering). Please come dressed ready to go, or you can find bag storage companies nearby online. 3. We recommend you run during daylight hours for better visibility and to ensure Regent’s Park is open. 4. Unlike some of our other virtual events, you do not need a PIN code

Scoring:  As usual, points will be awarded according to the first number of each control (so controls 10, 11 etc. are worth 10 points; 20, 21 etc. are worth 20 points and so on.) There is a stiff 30 point per minute penalty for lateness so it pays to be back on time! There are no ‘clues’ to write down, you only need to be in the right place for the App to register the control. However, we have put together this answer sheet, which you can carry along to double-check you’re in the right place, if you like.

GPS accuracy: We have tested all the controls for GPS-worthiness and implemented a generous 25-metre ‘tolerance’, so they should register fine (although you may have to wait a few seconds for your GPS track to catch up.) If, despite being in the right place, a control refuses to register, please get in touch afterwards and I’ll see what I can do:

Like all our Street-Os, this a public race – all are welcome, although all competitors take part at their own risk, and any under-16s must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

If you have any questions, do ask them on our Facebook event page or email me on

With many thanks to course setters Tessa Bertran & Todd Fallesen and MapRun guru Peter Foulkes.
