OSS September 2014 (Headington Hill)

17th September 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm


The first street-o of the new season will be held around the streets of Headington and has been planned by Bill Child.

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.


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.
