Transport – nearest tube stations are Pimlico or Victoria, nearest train station is Victoria, plenty of buses go to Victoria.

Parking – on street parking is free after 6.30pm but read the signs carefully to make sure you are not in a residents only bay.

Race format – usual 60-minute format.  Points vary from 10 to 30 per control, maximum score 600.  10 points penalty for every 30 seconds late.  Maps will be printed on waterproof paper.  Don't forget to bring a watch and a pen to write down your answers to the “clues” as you go round. All streets are well lit so clues should be visible (but
you might find it helpful to have a small torch).

Safety – fluorescent clothing is recommended. There are a number of major roads in the area, please take care crossing them.

Cost – £1 to cover the cost of printing waterproof maps.

Changing/showers – we have a reasonable amount of space for changing and leaving bags but only one shower.  Please leave your running shoes in the hall downstairs.

Food – we will be making chilli (meat and veggie) and rice for which we will ask for a contribution of £2.

To assist with predicting numbers for maps and food, please email if you plan to attend.  Please let us know if you would like food and whether you are vegetarian.
