Summer Evening Street O Series

One Hour Score Events

This year the club is offering a few other events to see whether there is a demand and interest in something different. Our first offerings are informal street O races which are 1 hour score events.

Using simple street maps based on OpenStreetMapping ( http://www.oomap.co.uk) with controls being street furniture such as lamp posts , hydrants, signs etc. A mapping example is here. 

Results of the first two events, held in Exmouth and Exeter, are now available. Next up it's Kingsteignton on Tuesday 19th June.

Open to all.... but under 16’s have to run with a parent as we will be sharing the courses with vehicles at times.  There will be a mass start at 7 p.m. with a strict 1 hour limit encouraging people to head on to a local hostelry afterwards for a chance for a race debrief….. or a refreshing drink.

Register from 6.30 onwards and bring a pen/pencil plus a watch !      £3 entry fee.
