  • Wearing high visibility clothing is highly advised now that the evenings are drawing in.
  • You should not come if you have symptoms of COVID-19.

Format 45 minute Score event – visit as many controls as you can in 45 minutes. You can walk, run or jog. Bring a smartphone or GPS watch if you have one, and pre-load the MapRun course: UK/Hertfordshire/HH WGC Finale 2022 PXAS ScoreV45 PZ (Download in advance; the PIN to unlock it will be provided at start).

It’ll be StreetO as you know it (visiting as many controls as you can in 45 minutes) but with an added twist bonus points are available by chaining your control type eg visiting two, or three, or four postboxes in a row will earn you extra points. What strategy will you pick to maximise your point scoring?
Full instructions will be provided at the start. Everyone is welcome: newcomers and StreetO veterans! It would be great to have a big turnout for our last event of the season. Afterwards we’ll be heading to Humphrey’s at the Campus West (~30 metres away) for a drink.
