Wed 30th Jan 2019

A cold crisp evening for a bit of O tonight...
Thank you to the staff at the Francis Newton for being so accommodating and of course to Emily for planning (wasn't it good that no matter who you were you couldn't get them all) and Ian for sorting out the map - adding the Edge, Botanics and Endcliffe on to the City map. Also thank you to Pauline and Max for running registration and download respectively.
Results are below based on the number of controls people had visited. Those going old school and writing answer are highlighted in yellow. To the rest - thank you for trying map run. In general it seems far more accurate outside the city centre away from the tall buildings. There still seems to be a few problems with GPS switching off and the odd crash but as we become more familiar with it I think this will improve. It certainly makes collecting controls easy...
If anyone is missing controls let us know and we will add them on (that especially goes for those at the bottom with 0 controls!).
The MapRun app will still register runs so if anyone wants to go out an prove that you can do them all then feel free...

Our annual urban night score, suitable for experienced orienteers and newcomers, around the Broomhill and Ecclesall Road area of Sheffield
Registration, Start & Finish
At the Francis Newton Pub, Clarkehouse Road, Broomfield, Sheffield, S10 2LA. We will be based in the conservatory.
Free parking in pub car park. The pub is adjacent to the Hallamshire Hospital so is well served by buses.
Adults £5 (£4 members)
£3 Juniors & Students.
Pairs welcome. Just pay for 1 entry. Fee included for those who block pay for SYO Club Night.
You have 1 hour to find as many controls as you can in the streets surrounding the pub. As there will be many roads to cross, under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
Map A3 @ 1:5000
SI timing will be used for start & finish. We will be using mobile phone GPS to record visits to control sites (no controls out). The technology is compatible with Android and iPhone. Please download the maprun app.
There will be a pencil & paper ‘quiz’ alternative for those that prefer a more traditional method!
Registration from 5.45pm. Starts 6 -7.15pm.

Safety & risk
A comprehensive risk assessment will have been carried out by the organiser, but participants take part at their own risk and are responsible for their own safety during the event. If a competitor has a pre-existing medical condition that they think should be declared, please complete a medical form at enquiries. The sealed envelope will only be opened in an emergency.
SYO has an agreed policy on the taking of photographs at events, based on national guidance. This provides a sensible balance between the benefits and risks associated with the taking and use of images. If you are unsure about acceptable practice, please speak to the event organiser.
