Night Street Series

Under COVID-19 September 2020

These events will go ahead (given we are in level 2 or less) but with some differences to adhere to restrictions in place at the time. They will all be run using MapRunF (ie using the app on your phone or orienteering watch) with no physical controls (instructions about MapRunF here). Event 1, 2 and 4 will be the usual night Street event format (20 controls - choose to visit any 6, 10, 14 or 18 - details below) Event 3 will be a rogaine - a choice of 3 hours or 90 minutes. Penalties will apply for minutes over your chosen time.

Event 1 - 2nd Sept - (being run under restricted Level 2) will be run with no gathering. The map will be available to download from the web from Monday morning onwards. The MapRunF event will be available from 6.30pm on Tuesday 1st Sept in the in the New Zealand/Auckland/Street Events directory. You can run it on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. Results will be published Friday. Do your 5 minutes planning before going to the start. Given an easing of the numbers permitted at an event, the remainder of the events will be run on the Wednesday nights. You can start any time after 6.30pm. Maps will be placed at the gate of the address given. Collect your map, give yourself your planning time (5 minutes for the short events, 10 for the rogaine) and then start your MapRunF app and go to the start. It will be contactless but there will be a club member in a car by the gate should you need to ask anything.

Should we return to level 1 any time during this series we will again gather before the event and have soup afterwards!!

What is the format for the night street events?
There will be 20 control sites marked on the map. Plan to visit any 6, 10, 14 or 18 controls. Give yourself 5 minutes to decide which ones you will visit and plan your route. You can choose the number you select to do, depending on how long you wish to be out. Make this decision before you start.   The setters of the courses have attempted to make different choices available for these numbers of controls and therefore make it a better challenge to you. To give you a feel of how many you should select to do, within about an hour you can visit 6 controls walking, 10 slow running, 14 running at a good pace and 18 going very fast!  When you go into MapRunF you will need to select the event name with the number of controls you are visiting in the name - ie if doing 6 controls select the one with PXAS06 (doing 10 controls has PXAS10, 14 controls has PXAS14 and 18 controls has PXAS18).

The Night Street Series are four low key and easy navigation events using maps that look at little like street maps (with no street names).  They are perfect motivation for having a run on a cold winter evening and the navigation will keep you from getting bored.  You are welcome to run on your own or with a couple of friends, or even your dog.  Don't forget to bring a good torch or headlamp.

You choose to visit any 6, 10, 14 or 18 controls and plan to finish in approximately 1 hour.  6 controls can be visited within an hour if you are walking, 18 controls will need a fast run!  We will have a cup of soup ready for you on your return.


Maps are handed out at 18:55 with a mass start at 7.00pm (19.00).  Everyone aims to be finished by 8:00pm and you design your own course to suit how fast you want to go.

Leave yourself some time before the start to find a park.  These are urban events and parking is most often in residential streets, so you may need to walk a short distance to get to the event center (normally the garage or carport of a friendly orienteer)
