The Street-O format has clues located at various points on a map. You have 60 minutes to visit as many of these as possible, in any order, and return to the finish. This guide provides general information about street orienteering.

Don’t forget to bring a pen to write down your answers to the clues as you go around, and a watch. We would recommend a all runners carry a torch or headtorch. The map is 1:12,500 scale and omits the railways, not to confuse you but rather to avoid obscuring useful detail. A map with the railways shown will be available at the start.

All competitors take part at their own risk. You MUST be over 16 to take part in this event, unless you are accompanied by a parent or guardian. This is a condition of our insurance.

Results will be available on the SLOW website shortly after the event.
