DIY Street-O

Socially distanced urban orienteering activities for over-16s – participate for free at a time that suits you.

Not sure how to get started? See our Introductory Guide

For further guidance please see the (evolving) Wiki page at

Each Wednesday we will publish a Street-O map and make the same course available via the MapRunF (Android & iPhone) app.

You may run the course at any time, but suggest that where possible you participate before the following Tuesday so that you can share experiences via our usual zoom Social.

We strongly recommend recording your track (via your phone & MapRunF, or on a separate GPS-enabled device) and sharing via the MapRun results site.  Courses have been risk-assessed. For your safety you must read the pre-read information, and any additional safety information on the map.

While we believe that undertaking this activity is compliant with current social distancing regulations it is your responsibility to check, especially as guidance can change at short notice.
