OSS Event December 2012 (Headington Hill)

18th December 2012 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm


The last street-o of 2012 will be around the streets of Headington and has been planned by Bill Child. Look out for the seasonal bonus (see Race Format below)!

Event Centre

The event centre is Bill’s house at 40 Jack Straw’s Lane. The residents’ parking restrictions in Staunton Road (the bit to the West of Headley Way) only run until 5 or 6pm, so should be plenty of parking there. In the unlikely event that it’s full, then there should be more parking available at the bottom of the Jack Straw’s Lane hill, towards Marston Road. (No parking in the private lane bit of Jack Straw’s Lane, which runs N-S.)

Race Format

60 minute score (visit as many controls as you can and return within 60 minutes). Remember to bring a watch and a pen! A head torch could also be useful as there are a few unlit roads and paths. Start times are between 6.30pm and 8pm, starting whenever you’re ready. See About Street-O for a more detailed description.

Christmas is coming, so for this event only there will be bonus points on offer for running in festive fancy dress, ranging from 10 points for festive headgear to 50 points for a full Santa suit… all at Bill’s discretion, so dress to impress!


Largely tarmac roads and paths. Most roads have a 20mph limit and low traffic levels.


As usual, please stay after you have run to discuss routes, mistakes, the weather or anything else that takes your fancy. No hot food this month, but we will provide plenty of mince pies!
