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, an SI card if you have one, and a watch so that you aren’t late back! You may find a torch/head-torch and compass useful too, although many don’t take one.

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. Check the 2016-17 series page for more information.
