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. Sunset will be 6.22pm, so we would recommend a all runners carry a torch or headtorch. The map is 1:10,000.
