Night Street Series

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! 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 in about an hour. Take 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!

We are using the MapRun6 app for these events, with no physical controls (ie using the app on your phone or orienteering watch; instructions about MapRun6 here). MapRun detects when you have reached each control and beeps to tell you that you've been successful. When you go into MapRun6 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).

Whenever we run a street rogaine instead, there will be time options rather than number of controls.


 COVID is meaning we are still attempting to avoid close contact so we will not be holding a mass start from someone’s house as in previous years. For this series of events we will have the maps available to pick up from a box at the nominated place for you to start any time between 6.45pm and 8pm the night of the event. The code to activate the event in MapRun will be on the map. Give yourself 5 minutes to plan your course then enter the code into MapRun and begin your course. Your result will be automatically uploaded into MapRun when you finish.


You will need to pre-enter for the event using the link in the event on the webpage. To help us print the right number of maps we ask that you do this by 9am on the morning of the event but you will be able to enter even when you arrive at the event if you suddenly find you can come. We will print a few extra maps. But not too many so please do enter by 9am at the latest. To simplify payment we are offering a discounted seasons ticket (all 4 events)
