Race Format

The normal Street O format; you have 60 minutes to visit as many controls as possible, in any order, and return to the finish. Don’t forget to bring a pen to write down your answers to the clues as you go around, and a watch (both essential!). All clues will be visible under street lights (you may find it helpful to have a small torch or mini headlamp, but certainly not required). General information about street orienteering.


Fluorescent clothing is recommended for safety. As with all Street-O races, you will need to cross roads with traffic during the race, some of which may be busy – take extreme care when crossing all roads. All competitors take part at their own risk.


Food available:
Tea, coffee, squash
Cheese and ham rolls, beans/spaghetti on toast, porridge.


Results will be available on the SLOW website shortly after the event, along with overall results for the Street-O series so far.
