TVOC Street-O on MapRun

New to MapRun? Read our user guide here.

The Street-O series should start again in Autumn 2022. In the meantime, three practice events, which can be run at any time, may be found below.

To find all events on the MapRun app, open the app, click on Select Event > UK > Thames Valley > TVSS. Note that this folder contains some older events from last year as well, but we have named things carefully and the event you are looking for should be easy to find. However, you may need to scroll down a bit.

Please note that these events involve road crossings and, as such, are not suitable for unaccompanied under-16s

To access the pdf map and control descriptions, click on the event name (hotlink) below. Maps are 1:10,000 unless otherwise noted. White areas are OOB even if they appear to be crossable on the ground; yellow areas may be traversed.

Almost all of our events use the “Waikato Score” system: visit as many controls as you can in 60 minutes. 10 points for each control numbered 10-19, 20 points for each control numbered 20-29, and 30 points for the controls numbered 30-39. There is a penalty of 20 points for each minute (or part thereof) you are late back. There have been some exceptions to this.

Practice event 3: North Abingdon The Start/Finish is at the Lamp post at the far end of Rutherford Close OX14 2AT. From the Oxford Road, Abingdon, turn into Appleford Drive at the traffic lights adjacent to the Boundary House Pub. Parking can easily be found in adjacent streets. Please do not park in Rutherford Close itself. Control numbers 11 and 14 are Footbridges. All the remaining controls are Lamp posts. 

Practice event 2: Thame. Start/Finish in Victoria Mead, OX9 3HY; plenty of street parking available nearby.

Practice event 1: Botley Starts and finishes in Toynbee Close, Botley, OX2 9HW.  There is ample on-street parking with no restrictions in the area.  The map takes in streets and footpaths which at this time of year are very muddy so trail shoes are definitely recommended.  The A34 cuts across the map North to South and can only be crossed at three locations (all via underpasses) next to controls 10, 11 and 12.  Should you choose to cross at control 12 you will need to run on the wide pavement alongside the A34 – this footpath can be clearly seen on the map.  Please take care if using this route.  The majority of controls are lamp-posts but there are some variations so please refer to the separate description sheet. Sites should be obvious from the map anyway as long as you’re in the right place!
