Normal Street-O format with clues located at each control site. You have 60 minutes to visit as many controls as possible, in any order, and return to the finish. SI will be used to time the start and finish, please bring your SI card if you have one. Don’t forget to bring a pen to write down your answers to the clues as you go around, and a watch. All controls have been located under normal street light but as always a head torch may be useful in picking up detail and on certain route choices which may not be so well lit. General information about street orienteering.
